As required by the Warning Alert and Response Network (WARN) Act, the FCC has adopted final rules to establish a Commercial Mobile Alert System (CMAS), under which Commercial Mobile Service (CMS) providers may elect to transmit emergency alerts to the public. In order to ensure that the CMAS operates efficiently and effectively, the Commission will require participating CMS providers to participate in required monthly tests (RMTs) of the CMAS that are initiated by the Federal Alert Gateway Administrator. Participating CMS providers must distribute these RMT messages to their CMAS coverage areas within 24 hours of receipt by the CMS Provider Gateway unless pre-empted by actual alert traffic or inability to do so due to an unforeseen condition. A participating CMS provider shall indicate such an unforeseen condition by a response code to the Federal Alert Gateway. A participating CMS provider must retain an automated log of the RMT messages received by the CMS Provider Gateway from the Federal Alert Gateway. In addition to the RMTs, participating CMS providers must participate in periodic testing of the interface between the Federal Alert Gateway and its CMS Provider Gateway that is not intended to test the CMS provider's infrastructure or mobile devices, but rather is required to ensure the availability/viability of both gateway functions. Each CMS Provider Gateway shall send an acknowledgement to the Federal Alert Gateway upon receipt of such an interface test message. The Commission will use this information to ensure the continued functioning of the CMAS, thus complying with the WARN Act and the Commission's obligation to promote the safety of life and property through the use of wire and radio communication.
