National Wireless Emergency Alert System set to test Sept. 20

The Federal Emergency Management Agency is testing a new "presidential alert" system nationwide for the first time next week that will make it possible for Donald Trump to directly message almost everyone in the nation who has a cell phone.

The WEA, which has never been nationally tested, was developed to send disaster or information alerts to any cellular device within a cellphone tower's range. This is capable of presumably presumably be the first nationwide test of the WEA gadget.

A new system from the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) could soon mean that the president of the United States could send alerts directly to your phone.

FEMA announces the test of a new emergency alert system that will allow President Donald Trump to sent emergency alerts.

Cellphone users can not opt out of receiving alerts in accordance with the 2006 Warning, Alert and Response Network (WARN) Act passed by Congress. "No action is needed".

During the test, the WEA signal will begin at 1:18 p.m. followed by the EAS portion at 1:20 p.m.

It said challenges in getting a deal done were "daunting" and warned against further United Kingdom interest rate rises. The Prime Minister delivered the warning to her political opponents - including her ex-Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson.

The system is already used to warn the public about "dangerous weather, missing children, and other critical situations".

All major carriers in Hawaii participate in the alert, but there are assorted factors why some phones get the blaring alert and others don't.

The message will read: "THIS IS A TEST of the National Wireless Emergency Alert System". A nationwide emergency alert test for radio, television, cable systems, and satellite radio and TV providers will also be conducted on the afternoon of September 20.

Officials in Alaska want to hear from residents and what they think about the effectiveness of a national emergency system. It is not the first time that mobile networks have been used for similar messages. Users can not opt out of the WEA test.

Unique to this nationwide test is the addition of Wireless Emergency Alerts (WEA) - used to warn the public about risky weather, missing children, and other critical situations through alerts on cell phones. It's basically the cell phone version of the Emergency Broadcast System that we are all familiar with, mostly because of the tests that are broadcast over television or radio at various times.
