The Marquette community should be aware that the Milwaukee County Office of Emergency Management has been authorized by the Federal Communications Commission to issue a Wireless Emergency Alert test message on Wednesday, Nov. 6.
Alerts received at the right time can help keep you safe during an emergency. With Wireless Emergency Alerts (WEA), warnings can be sent to mobile devices of individuals who may be in harm’s way, without a special app or subscription. WEA messages are text messages sent through mobile carriers in designated geographic areas, similar to how mobile phones receive AMBER alerts.
More information is online. Contact MUPD with questions at (414) 288-6800.
