Presidential alert system reveals Trump’s hot Arizona sports takes

FEMA didn't force wireless carriers to participate, but as NBC News notes, a lot of them did anyway.

They do this using a system known as the Integrated Public Alert and Warning System (IPAWS).

Unlike other alerts - such as natural disaster warnings - there is no way to opt out, except switching a device off or blocking its cellular connection.

It guided the ways in which local, state and federal officials could use these alerts.

These alerts will come from the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) and the Federal Communications Commission (FCC).

All freaking out aside, the wireless alert system actually launched in 2012 when Barack Obama was president, so it's been around for a while.

The presidential alert can only be activated by the current president, but the reasons for doing so are legally defined. It's the first national Presidential Alert test, which will allow any sitting President to send nationwide emergency messages.

The Emergency Alert System message will be longer. "You've probably received one of these alerts if you've been in the path of severe weather events".

The alert everyone got this week was not sent by Trump, despite the misleading title. They are also typically sent to targeted geographic regions.

Americans can opt out of those, but the new national alert system does not allow for that.

The test is made available to EAS participants, officials said.

A second alert on television broadcast and radio went off at 2:20 p.m. EDT.

Earlier on Wednesday, a federal judge in New York City rejected a request to block the test in a lawsuit filed last month by three New York residents.

The emergency text message that President Donald Trump sent to the nation on Wednesday was met with hilarious responses on social media. "No action is required".

If you haven't looked down at your phone recently. You also have to be within range of an active cell tower to receive the alert.

Can I silence my phone or turn off the alert?

You will not be charged for this message, the alerts do not collect any data, and the alerts do not have any tracking capabilities.
