Why you'll be getting a text from President Trump this Wednesday

People will not receive notifications of President Trump's tweets, said Johnson. Since its launch in 2012, the WEA system been used more than 40,000 times.

A second alert on television broadcast and radio will go off at 8:20 a.m. Hawaii time.

The text tone sounds similar to ones sent out during an AMBER ALert, prompting the Boise School District to reassure parents the alert is not spurred by an actual emergency.

WEA: The WEA delivers alerts to cell phones.

WEA and EAS are part of a nation-wide system for issuing warnings and alerts for national emergencies.

The federal agency and the Federal Communications Commission initially planned to conduct the test on September 20, but delayed it due to emergency efforts taking place in the path of Hurricane Florence.

A nationwide test of the United States' new Wireless Emergency Alerts, the first of its kind, is set to take place on Wednesday.


Phones with mobile carriers that participate in the wireless emergency alert system - which sends out information on hazardous weather or missing children - will get the alert.

The wireless emergency alert system is meant to be used in the event of emergencies, like incoming nuclear missiles fired from North Korea in response to a particularly provocative tweet emanating from the Devil's Workshop during the Witching Hour.

The brief message will also say that it is only a TEST and that no action is needed.

In Saginaw County, 12 p.m. Wednesday is also the monthly test of the local alert system. It will be accompanied by a national alert tone.

Extreme and Severe Threats: These alerts are used to alert the public to imminent safety threats, and are mostly used for weather warnings.

Don't freak out when your phone lights up and starts buzzing on Wednesday afternoon: it's only the federal government doing a nationwide test of the Presidential Alert system. It is being completed in coordination with the Federal Communications Commission.

FEMA stated that the government can not track end users' location through this alert system. Those who did not receive the message may have been on a phone call or had their phone turned off, for example. Under the Warning, Alert, and Response Network (WARN) Act of 2006, cellphone users can not opt out of the presidential alerts. Others will not. No action is required.
