Mendocino County Office of Emergency Services want to make the public aware of an upcoming public alert and warning test occurring in Sonoma County on Wednesday 9/12 between 10am-12pm. Sonoma County’s test will send out notifications to cell phones, radio and television. Anyone near the alerting area may receive an alert on their cell phone. The alert should display on all compatible mobile devices with a special tone and vibration, and a brief text notification. Additionally notification messages may be broadcast on local television and radio channels.
Due to the close proximity of the test to Mendocino County, some residents of Mendocino County may receive the notification as well. Sonoma and Mendocino Counties share local radio and TV stations and have cell towers which serve residents in both counties, as a result, residents located in Mendocino County may also receive the test notifications
