The Office of Emergency Services will test the reverse 9-1-1 system at 1 p.m. Wednesday.
If you receive a call, no response is necessary.
The test will be coordinated with the Sheriff's Office and the Emergency Dispatch Center.
The test will also include test alerts through the NY-Alert system. Anybody can sign up for alerts through nyalert.gov.
NY-Alert provides individuals with messages either via phone, text, RSS, fax, pager or e-mail of incident-specific emergency messages or impending road closures and weather issues.
The service is free.
