ST. JOSEPH, Mich. — The Berrien County Emergency Management Office wishes to remind residents that they will be testing the public warning system on Friday, Feb. 5 at 3 p.m.

They say the Integrated Public Alert and Warning System will send out an alert to all devices that are subscribed to receive the alerts, adding that the alert may be delayed until 4 p.m. under certain circumstances.

“It is important to understand how to turn your device on to receive test alerts,” says Emergency Management Coordinator CPT. Rockey Adams. “Users may need to do an internet search or call their phone service provider to learn how their phone can be turned on to receive test alerts.”

We’re told Berrien County’s B-WARN! system will be tested at the same time as the IPAWS alert.
