Written by

WALDO COUNTY - Residents of Waldo County will be receiving a text alert this week from the emergency management agency, as part of a test of the county's alert system.

A text message will be sent to every active cell phone in Waldo County on Friday, March 22 around 3:00 p.m.

The message will read: "This is a test of the Waldo County wireless emergency alert system. No action is required."

Officials said it'll be similar to the test conducted by the federal government last fall.
