Dear Members of the Fordham Community,

The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) and the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) will conduct national tests of the Emergency Alert System and Wireless Emergency Alerts on Wednesday, October 4, at approximately 2:20 p.m. EDT. Test messages will be sent to all TVs, radios and cell phones at that time. Note that this is not a University test: Fordham has no control over the timing nor content of the messages. The full text of the FEMA/FCC notice can be found on the FEMA website.

As always, please call Fordham Public Safety at (718) 817-2222 in case of a real emergency.


Robert Fitzer, Associate Vice President
Fordham Department of Public Safety
