Situational Awareness Bulletin – Cellular Broadcasting Test This Thursday
The New York City Office of Emergency Management in cooperation with the Federal Emergency Management Agency, the Federal Communications Commission, and mobile telephone service providers will be conducting the first-ever end-to-end test of cellular broadcasting technology this Thursday, December 15, 2011 from approximately 10:00 AM until 3:00 PM.
During the test a series of messages will be broadcast over the cellular network and may be received by enabled handsets. Each of these broadcasts will clearly indicate that it is only a test message and that no emergency exists.
While this test is targeted for New York City it is possible that mobile phones in neighboring communities (Nassau County, Westchester County, New Jersey) may also receive the test messages. If the public has any questions regarding the technology, please contact your mobile phone service provider’s customer service number. Each service provider has indicated that their customer service personnel have been informed of this new technology and are aware of the test.

West Orange is distributing 1,400 20-gallon blue, plastic recycling bins free of charge to residents. Township residents can pick up a bin at the Department of Public Works office at 25 Lakeside Ave. during business hours. Residents will be asked to sign a pledge committing to household recycling practices.
To promote recycling, the NJ Department of Environmental Protection awarded a recycling grant to the Essex County Utilities Authority, which is providing municipalities with the containers.
