GETS and WPS Sector-Wide Exercise Scheduled for May 12-13

In preparation for the upcoming 2015 Atlantic hurricane season, a financial services sector-wide Government Emergency Telecommunications Service/Wireless Priority Service exercise will be conducted on May 12-13.

The Financial and Banking Information Infrastructure Committee and the Financial Services Sector Coordinating Council are partnering with the Department of Homeland Security Office of Emergency Communications to sponsor this sector-wide exercise and ensure users are familiar with the dialing procedures necessary to make successful calls — especially during times when they may be experiencing stressful conditions.
