No Cellphone Left Behind: U.S. to Test ‘Presidential Alert’ System

Here's what you need to know.

This is the U.S. government we're talking about here, so get ready for some acronyms. "We're trying to analyse that", O'Rielly said. The FCC proposed and created the alert network in 2007 in response to an act passed by Congress in 2006-the Warning, Alert, and Response Network (WARN) Act. At that time, all registered Humboldt Alert users will receive a test message.

It can also notify the public about extreme weather or missing children, also known as Amber Alerts. But those emergency weather alerts and AMBER alerts can only be sent on a regional or statewide basis, not nationally and all at once.

New Orleans Homeland Security Director Colin Arnold told WWL-TV, the city is set up to use the system locally, if needed. WEA allows most customers to receive geo-targeted alerts of imminent threats to safety in their area.

Future text alerts could be used to inform Americans how to find their designated Trump Radioactivity Fallout Camps and where to collect their delicious Trump Steak, Trump Water, and Trump Potassium Iodide rations. But that's not an option on presidential alerts.

Has WEA and EAS Been Tested Before?

The goal of Wednesday's test is to check how well the system works and iron out any wrinkles that do crop up, so that it works properly in the event of a national emergency. "No action is needed".

The test message will be sent at 11:18 a.m. PT/2:18 p.m. ET on Wednesday, though FEMA says it might take a few minutes for the test to make it to all phones.

It is a part of FEMA's system to warn citizens in case of national emergencies. FEMA officials estimate it will reach about 75 percent of all mobile phones in the country, including phones on all of the major carriers.

The message will be the first ever test of Wireless Emergency Alerts, or "Presidential Alert" system. People will not receive notifications of President Trump's tweets, said Johnson. "No action is required".

"And that's the whole goal, that everybody stops what they're doing and listen to the message they are about to receive", Maxwell said. They said a person on a call lasting 30 minutes may not get the alert as with phones with an active data connection.
