Mills also said, right now, there is no statewide policy or guidance document in place. Mills would not comment if the department would have a discussion with Garner or punish him.

The test is scheduled for Thursday, September 20 at 10:18 a.m. and will last for about one minute. Most cell phones will get a text that says:
“THIS IS A TEST of the National Wireless Emergency Alert System. No action is needed.”
Operations Chief for DHS&EM, Bryan Fisher, says communication in Alaska is different than in the Lower 48 so he’s grateful for Alaskans’ feedback.
“Every time these systems are tested in Alaska we find ways to make improvements,” Fisher wrote.
After the test is finished, the state wants you to take the survey here.
You can participate even if your cell phone didn’t receive the test message.
