Officials with the Tennessee Emergency Management Agency are apologizing for last Thursday’s test of the Emergency Alert System. Thousands received the test over their wireless phone but did not receive the message that it was “ONLY A TEST.” TEMA Director Patrick Sheehan said in a statement that the purpose of the test was to assess the readiness and effectiveness of the system in an effort to save lives and protect property. He apologized for upsetting people and said that TEMA will not be conducting any public tests of the Wireless Emergency Alerts system in the foreseeable future.
