Section 602(f) of the WARN Act requires that the Commission "require by regulation technical testing for commercial mobile service providers that elect to transmit emergency alert and for the devices and equipment used by such providers for transmitting such alerts." We require Participating CMS Providers to support State/Local WEA testing and expanded alert logging requirements.

Since the last submission to OMB, Commission is reporting adjustments/decreases to this information collection. The number of CMS providers participating in WEA has decreased by 4; the total annual responses decreased by 22,580 and the total annual burden hours decreased by 6,269. This is due to wireless providers’ modifications of their participation status, and due to the Commission’s adoption of a methodology for counting participating entities that better aligns with the filings in the WEA election docket, PS 08-146 and the Master CMAS Registry. There are no program changes to this collection.
