Emergency alert test going out to mobile phones nationwide

Everyone will receive alert during test of national emergency alert system on Wednesday

FEMA stated that the government can not track end users' location through this alert system. "We're trying to analyse that", O'Rielly said.

"THIS IS A TEST of the National Emergency Alert System".

Amber alerts, an emergency response that disseminates information about a missing person (usually a child), by media broadcasting or electronic roadway signs. Right now, in cooperation with major wireless carriers, FEMA can deliver alerts nationally or to an area as small as a single county.

The WEA is an alerting network in the United States created to disseminate emergency alerts to mobile devices such as cell phones and pagers. Mistakes like that could make people nervous about this new nationwide alert.

Is it a message from President Trump?

First Lady Melania Trump Greets Children in Ghana on Africa trip
She has accompanied President Donald Trump on foreign visits, but she chose Africa for her first multi-nation trip alone. In addition to Ghana, she is due to visit Malawi, Kenya and Egypt before returning to Washington early on October 7.

"The president will not originate this alert, say, from his mobile device", a senior FEMA official told reporters on Tuesday. A backup date is always planned in case of widespread severe weather or other significant events on the primary test date. Alerts of this type are typically sent to targeted geographic regions. This will be the first presidential-level test and residents can not opt out.

Has WEA and EAS Been Tested Before?

The test starts at 2:18 PM EST and will continue for about half an hour.

During the Cold War, it was pretty common to see and hear tests of the Emergency Broadcasting System. "No action is needed", it'll read.

At 1:20 p.m., broadcasters and cable provides will test the National Emergency Alert System.

Canada, US in last-minute NAFTA deal
They made a joint statement late Sunday night, in which they have named it USMCA (United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement). In August previous year , he started a review of the trade pact with Mexico and Canada that opened up negotiations.

You can also expect that ear-destroying tone to go along with the WEA and EAS test messages.

A majority of cellphone users will receive an alert on Wednesday with the header "Presidential Alert" and the message, "THIS IS A TEST of the National Wireless Emergency Alert System".

Cell phones that are turned on and within the range of an active cell tower are expected to receive the message. Others will not. No action is required. That means everyone's smart phone will blare out an Amber Alert-like alarm at the same time. Some older phones, however, may not receive the alerts. That's one of the things they are testing.

As it's blasted out by cell towers nationwide over a 30-minute period, the message is expected to reach some 225 million people in an unprecedented federal exercise.

When will I get the alert?
