So Glendale had a mandatory fire evacuation drill, but didn't bother to tell anyone it was a drill except maybe on Twitter?

And they alerted people as far away as Orange County?

And since when are these drills mandatory? Did they take attendance? What if you were at work?

The "tech" was the problem? Not the content of the message failing to have "THIS IS ONLY A TEST" at the beginning and end of the message?

I had a couple of friends on Maui a few years back when the accidental emergency nuke alert activated, and they were both sure that their fiery deaths were imminent.

Of course, I only had a small amount of farks to give, because they were on Maui and I was not.

Meh, it's Glendale. It's a city full of pettiness and outright racism. I'm only surprised the message wasn't sent out specifically in Armenian to only, simply to protect only a certain demographic of people.

Even then there would be infighting about who is a "real Armenian" because of the diaspora.

Couldn't said it better myself. Glendale is a vile hateful place, with multiple white BMWs adorned with MAGA flags per square foot and residents who will proudly tell you that they were out patrolling their streets with guns in hand to stop "BLM rioters".

I got that alert. From where I was on the freeway I should have been able to see smoke if there was a fire, so I knew it was a mistake.

I saw that when it aired, my mom was a huge Goldie Hawn fan, and we loved all the early 80's Chevy Chase comedies (Seems like Old Times, Spies Like Us, Fletch).  Holy tapdancing shiat, that show stunk.  Even my mom got embarassed for Hawn, saying "All they did is tell each other how much they loved the other's work, for a half hour, what was happening there?!?"

Coke. Coke was happening.

Waaay back when I was a little kid on Oahu, we had tsunami practice warnings which I am sure were WW2 air raid sirens. So if you heard one, your could be sure that :

a) there is not a tsunami coming
b) there is a tsunami coming
c) the Germans are coming to bomb Pearl Harbor

I also received this emergency text, not quite my neighborhood so meh, but they didn't send the retraction for about 30 minutes.  Uberfail.

I still think "Bureau of Land Management" any time I see "BLM" and wonder why they're rioting.

"...our fire environment in Souhern California..."

So, no Southern California that is going to have fires, but only the fire environment. Phew, that's a relief.

"...prime for another potentially active fire season..."

I guess they meant primed, not prime.  I love how the fire environment is primed for a potentially active fire season. And not primed for fires, just an active season.

Based on this "threat" system there seems to be no threat to anybody anywhere.

I'll laugh if "Southern California" is not even in southern California. It's probably a town in eastern Nevada or somewhere like that.
