National Wireless Emergency Alert System Set to Test Sept. 20

The message is scheduled to be sent within 30 minutes of 11:15 a.m. PDT on Thursday, Sept. 20 with a heading of "Presidential Alert". It's only a test.
Leftists went into full freakout mode on Friday after it was announced that the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) will test the Emergency Alert System (EAS) next week - a system that allows President Donald Trump to message all Americans.
The WEA system is used to warn the public about unsafe weather, missing children, and other critical situations through alerts on cell phones.
The test message will have a header that reads "Presidential Alert", according to the agency.
The test is supposed to take place at 2:18 p.m. EDT on September 20.
Officials in Alaska want to hear from residents and what they think about the effectiveness of a national emergency system.
FEMA says any compatible cell phone tied to a participating wireless provider that is switched on and in the range of cell tower should get the alert once.
"If you separate this from the politics and personality of any individual president, then this is a great idea and an wonderful use of technology to reach everybody if they're in harms way", Karen North, director of the Annenberg Digital Social Media program at the University of Southern California, told NBC.
He plans to message every cell phone in America to test a new Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) system that will allow any US president to communicate directly via a text message with the public during a national emergency. "No action is needed".
Presidential alerts will only be sent out if there is a national emergency that is not extreme weather or Amber Alerts.
You can't opt out of the WEA test. The well-worn emergency alert system reaches mainly radio and television broadcasters, cable systems, satellite radio and television providers.
The system is the latest generation of warnings at a time when more people are typically linked at any one time to their cell phones than radios or TVs.
If the test is postponed for some reason, the back-up date is Wednesday, Oct. 3.
