The national Wireless Emergency Alert system will be tested Wednesday Oct. 3

At 2:18 p.m. EDT on October 3, most Americans' cell phones will light up with a text from President Donald Trump, 72.
"CBS This Morning" got an inside look at the new system with Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) officials ahead of the test. Verizon Communications Inc said almost all of its mobile phone handsets are capable of getting alerts. The tone is one you should be familiar with. But those emergency weather alerts and AMBER alerts can only be sent on a regional or statewide basis, not nationally and all at once.
Things are a little more sophisticated now, but basically the same minute-long, Emergency Alert System test is conducted every month or so on broadcast, cable, and satellite TV and radio. "No action is needed" and will display the header "Presidential Alert".
The WEA is an alerting network in the United States created to disseminate emergency alerts to mobile devices such as cell phones and pagers.
If you happen to be watching television or listening to the radio around that time, you'll also see this alert broadcast out over the Emergency Alert System (EAS).
The WEA system is used to warn the public about risky weather, missing children, and other critical situations through alerts on cell phones, according to FEMA.
The Federal Emergency Management Agency says it'll sound like an Amber Alert or flood warning.
If this had been an actual emergency alert, an official message would have followed the alert tone you heard at the start of this message.
