Today is the day that FEMA will be testing their Emergency Alert System with a text message from the president. For anyone wondering no this is not a regular text message so don't try to text back you will not be talking with President Trump. This test is unique because it will allow the president to alert the country in the quickest way possible if there's a national threat.

The message on your phone will read "THIS IS A TEST of the National Wireless Emergency Alert System. No action is needed," with the header "Presidential Alert." The text message will not be like a normal message so no matter if your phone is on silent or not you can expect to hear two loud tones and the phone to vibrate similar to Amber Alerts. The test is set to go off around 1:18pm however they have said it could take a min for the message to reach everyone.
