Emergency Alerts Tests Coming Your Way Soon - 09/13/23

(Astoria, OR) — Clatsop County residents will receive two emergency alert tests in the next few weeks.


Clatsop County Emergency Management Department will conduct a test of its ClatsopAlerts! alert system on Tuesday, Sept. 26. Alerts will be sent to cell phones and landlines. 

“We encourage the public to visit ClatsopAlerts! before the test to register or make sure their contact information is correct,” said Clatsop County Emergency Management Director Justin Gibbs. 

“These tests are important because when there is a true emergency, we need to know our systems are working and the registered contacts are valid. Individual lives could depend upon them receiving an alert in time,” he said. 

The message will include a reminder of the free Get Ready Fair scheduled for 11 a.m. - 2 p.m. Saturday, September 30, at Warrior Hall at Camp Rilea in Warrenton.

Nationwide Emergency Alert Test for Cell Phones and Broadcast

FEMA, in coordination with the Federal Communications Commission (FCC), will conduct a nationwide test with messages going cell phones and radios and televisions. These tests are scheduled to begin at approximately 11:20 a.m. Pacific Time/2:20 p.m. Eastern Time on Wednesday, Oct. 4.
