Wide Presidential Alert To Be Tested Tomorrow

President Donald Trump in the Oval Office at the White House

A second test of the national Emergency Alert System, the kind that typically appears on TV and radio, will follow at 2:20 p.m. ET. "Periodic testing is a way to access the operational readiness of the infrastructure and determine whether technological improvements are needed". This is just a test, and it has been planned for some time. This is the fourth time the program has been tested, with the other three having been in 2011, 2016, and 2017, the agency says.

The WEA portion of the test is set for 1:18 p.m. CST and the EAS portion will follow at 1:20 p.m. CST.

Cell towers will broadcast the Presidential Alert for 30 minutes, but each phone "should only receive the message once", according to FEMA. Some cell phones will not receive the test message, and cell phones should only receive the message once.

Tomorrow, at around 2:18PM Eastern (11:18AM Pacific), you'll get a text message flagged as a "Presidential Alert". "No action is needed", officials said. This system is used to notify the public about "dangerous weather, missing children, and other regionally critical situations through alerts on cellular phones", the release said.

This new presidential alert will be nationwide and only used for advance warning of national crises. Users can't opt out of the presidential alert test, according to FEMA.

The ESA is a national public warning system that provides President Donald Trump with the communication capability to address the nation during a national emergency. The test message will be similar to regular monthly EAS test messages with which the public is familiar.

Wireless Emergency Alerts are sent to people's cell phones across the country during certain "critical situations", including unsafe weather events and times when there are missing children.
