I know that corner way to well. So scary. That corner needs something changed. Way too many accidents.

Keep an eye out for this on your mobile phone tomorrow morning!Not an Emergency, Just a Test
Help us spread the word...On Thursday, April 5 between 10 and 11 a.m., Montgomery County will be joining 19 other jurisdictions in the National Capital Region in conducting a test of the national Emergency Wireless Alerts (WEA) system. This will be the Country's first live regional test using geographically-targeted capabilities and is expected to reach 5.2 million people. This is not a program that you subscribe to, the messages come automatically, and there is no fee for the service.
What you can expect: Your WEA-enabled cell phone or other mobile device will vibrate and produce a loud audio signal before you receive a text-like message to your device. The message will be: "A test of the Montgomery County Emergency Wireless Alerts System. No action required."
The WEA system was developed by the Federal Communications Commission in 2012 to warn the public about dangerous weather, missing children, and other critical situations. Because the test is being conducted simultaneouly throughout our region, if you are traveling between jurisdictions, you may receive more than one alert.
The jurisdictions participating in the WEA testing include: City of Alexandria, City of Bowie, City of College Park, City of Fairfax, City of Falls Church, City of Gaithersburg, City of Greenbelt, City of Takoma Park, City of Manassas, City of Manassas Park, City of Rockville, District of Columbia, Arlington County, Charles County, Fairfax County, Frederick County, Loudoun County, Montgomery County, Prince George's County and Prince William County.
