From the Florida Department of Emergency Management (FLDEM):
We know a 4:45 AM wake up call isn’t ideal 😅
@FLSERT wants to apologize for the early morning text. Each month, we test #emergencyalerts on a variety of platforms. This alert was supposed to be on TV, and not disturb anyone already sleeping.
We are taking the appropriate action to ensure this will never happen again and that only true emergencies are sent as alerts in the middle of the night.
