California Refiles WEA Test Waiver Request

The California Governor’s Office of Emergency Services has refiled its request for a waiver to conduct an earthquake warning wireless emergency alert (WEA) test in Oakland. In a filing Friday in PS docket 15-91, Cal OES said it wants to conduct the test on March 27 with an alternative date of April 10. Last month, it asked to conduct the test on Feb. 6, but the FCC was not able to act on it because of the partial government shutdown (TR Daily, Jan. 4). In November, it withdrew an earlier waiver request due to the resources needed to tackle wildfires in the state (TR Daily, Nov. 30, 2018).
