I guess we're within 20 minutes or so of knowing!!!

Seems like they would have sent a 'test' communication at some point after initial signup!

I received an alert a couple of months ago on a missing child. And I think it was a txt but I'm not sure since I do emails and txt on the phone.

I just got an email at 10:38.

I had gotten a phone call at 10:18.  Caller ID showed a 5 digit number but when I answered I didn't hear anything.  Not sure if that was them or not...  don't honestly remember what I signed up for as to how to receive the alerts now...   just not text, I know that!

I also received a call to my cell but it wasn't on yet and went to voicemail.  I don't have my home phone in my profile so i'm puzzled as to why the call came their too. 
My caller ID shows  734-457-6792.
I'll set that up in my contacts.  If they use the same phone each time I'll know when it rings what it is.

“This is Monroe County Emergency management with an emergency message.”  It said in a man’s voice then switched to a robotic sort of female voice for: “This is a test of the Monroe County alert notification system. This is a test this is only a test.”


I received it at 10:40 and caller ID said “Monroe County” and did display a phone number.

I believe it calls all numbers in the phone book for the area for land lines.  That is the same caller ID number I had.

I checked my profile and did have my email set up as second option but I did not receive an email.  Maybe that function isn't operational yet.
