New National Emergency Alert System

News

UNITED STATES (KNWA) — If you’re near emergency situations, you can expect a message from President Trump soon. 

The Federal Emergency Management Agency is testing a new warning system.

The goal is to alert Americans on emergencies like severe weather and missing children. 

Most cell phone users will receive the alert Thursday afternoon.

The message will be titled “Presidential Alert” but will indicate it is only a test of the National Wireless Emergency Alert System.

FEMA will also test the emergency alert system on radio and television stations Thursday.
