Wireless Emergency Alerts Sound In Hawaii

You’re going to get a Presidential Alert Wednesday, but it’s not from the president | The State Wireless phone users can't block Trump administration 'Presidential Alert' test message

After all, phones continually send and receive data both when we're using the phone and even when we're not. IPAWS is designed as a way to coordinate public safety alerts at the national level, whether those alerts are intended for the entire nation or a more targeted local area.

The alternative is to buy a phone which isn't WEA-compatible, but most newer wireless phones are.

EAS: The Emergency Alert System delivers alerts via radio and television.

Axios reported that Congress requires the alert system be tested every three years. But in general, the process calls for the president - or his representative - to authorize FEMA to send an alert on the White House's behalf.

Except to the extent necessary for testing the public alert and warning system, the public alert and warning system shall not be used to transmit a message that does not relate to a natural disaster, act of terrorism, or other man-made disaster or threat to public safety. The political purposes point is especially important, he noted, since people can not opt out of the presidential alert.

Not everyone was pleased about the decision to send out the test alert.

AMBER Alerts: These alerts notify the public about child abduction. This is nothing new, and the system has been tested before.

What Can I Expect Today?

Eastern. Cell towers will broadcast the WEA test for about 30 minutes and the EAS test will last for about a minute.

The WEA text message will be sent at 2:18 p.m.

A NY federal judge has refused to block the Federal Emergency Management Agency from conducting its emergency alert test on telephones. "No action is needed", the message states.

While users may opt out of alerts for weather or missing children, any "presidential" alert cannot be opt-ed out of. This system is part of a test of the FEMA infrastructure test of readiness in case of emergency but will be controlled under the power of Trump. "This is a test to make sure the alerting system works and that we can get that message out from FEMA in Washington, D.C.to all the phone carriers and then to the cell towers then does it get to everyone's phones".

Americans went nuts on Wednesday when they received a startling message on their phones titled "Presidential Alert". Instead, they're from the US government, and both are test messages. "No action is required".

A tone will sound, mirroring previous alerts you may have received, like Amber Alerts or flood watch warnings. The people with their phones on do not disturb got the alert once their phone is off that mode.
