'PREPARE TO DIE': Leftists' Heads Explode Over Trump Alert

The alert test will be performed on the National Wireless Emergency Alert system next week on Thursday, Sept. 20 at 10:18 a.m., with a EAN (Emergency Action Notification) test at 10:20 a.m. But it won't be a political message or attack on one of his perceived enemies-or at least, it's not supposed to be.

FEMA will test the Wireless Emergency Alerts system to "assess the operational readiness of the infrastructure for distribution of a national message and determine whether improvements are needed", the agency said in a statement.

If you can't remember this happening before-you're correct.

Cell phone users who have their phones turned on, are within range of a cell tower and whose wireless providers are included in the WEA system will receive the text message. The system sends out a nationwide text to the public in the event of an emergency. "No action is needed".

In a real situation, the system would be used to warn the public about unsafe weather, missing children, or another critical situation that may require you to evacuate or remain in place.

Despite Trump's frequent use of Twitter as a method of communicating, experts told NBC News on Friday that Trump would not overuse the "Presidential Alert" system.

You can't opt out of the WEA test.

The EAS is also used with radio and television broadcasters, cable systems, satellite radio and television providers, and wireline video providers, the agency said.

The message is scheduled to be sent within 30 minutes of 11:15 a.m. PDT on Thursday, Sept. 20 with a heading of "Presidential Alert".

The test is meant to ensure public safety officials have the methods and systems that will deliver urgent alerts and warnings to the public in times of an emergency or disaster.

"If you separate this from the politics and personality of any individual president, then this is a great idea and an incredible use of technology to reach everybody if they're in harms way", Karen North, director of the Annenberg Digital Social Media program at the University of Southern California, told NBC.
