Why you'll be getting a text from President Trump this Wednesday

Eastern (1:18 p.m. Central). "No action is needed", officials said. Under the 2006 law establishing the wireless-alert system, Congress allowed participating carriers to let subscribers block any emergency alerts - except for those issued by the sitting US president.
A text from President Trump will come to most phones on Wednesday. In a background briefing for reporters, a senior FEMA official conceded there is no opting out of the alert but said the system is very well governed. However, officials said this is on your cell carrier's end.
The test messages were supposed to be sent out September 20, but the transmission was postponed until Wednesday on account of the emergency response during and after the landfall of Hurricane Florence on the East Coast. The law behind the cellphone notification system, which was passed in 2016, requires FEMA to run a test at least every three years.
But it's not exactly from President Trump.
But in general, the process calls for the president - or his representative - to authorize FEMA to send an alert on the White House's behalf. No POTUS has ever sent a nationwide WEA, so tomorrow will mark history, according to FEMA's page.
"THIS IS A TEST of the National Emergency Alert System". Wireless phones should receive the message only once.
Then who pushes the button?
"Alerts are rare, but can happen locally, statewide, or nationally".
In accordance with the WARN act, you are allowed to block imminent safety and AMBER alerts, but not Presidential alerts.
That message may go out to cellphones, weather radios and TV and radio stations - simultaneously. Pacific Time, it may take several minutes for the alert to reach your phone.
What about the other screens in my life?
The Integrated Public Alert and Warning System (IPAWS) is created to warn Americans in the event of a national emergency.
You can expect it to sound like an Amber Alert or flood warning, according to the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA). It will be accompanied by a national alert tone. The test will last for about 30 minutes, and cell phones that are turned on and "whose wireless provider participates in WEA" will most likely receive Trump's text. Some older phones, however, may not receive the alerts.

Dodgers beat Rockies to claim sixth consecutive NL West title
