Wireless Emergency Alert (WEA) - Test Message

A screenshot of two Wireless Emergency Alerts (WEA) taken from a cellular phone using iOS. These alerts were sent to the IPAWS Lab and not to the public. Alerting Authorities are able to use the IPAWS Lab for testing sending a message. The headline of the pop-ups read "Emergency Alert" and the body of the first alert reads "Test Message only" while the body of the second alert reads "Test message."
