Public Information Statement

... Public information statement...

Between 1130 am and noon today, and normally every Wednesday, we
will conduct a test of the NOAA all hazards weather radio alarm
system. Persons with alarms on their radios, are asked to ensure
that they are turned on, to confirm that the test was received.
Again, the alarm test will be conducted between 1130 am and noon
today. The alarm test may be cancelled without notice in the event
of rapidly developing warning or watch conditions, which require the
Wakefield office to shift into a higher alert Mode.
