According to a report by Huffpost, on Wednesday, the Federal Emergency Management Agency tested its first wireless alert system, a new feature that will allow President Donald Trump to send emergency messages to a majority of American's cellphones. There are reportedly 3 types of wireless alerts, presidential alerts during a national emergency, warnings about extreme weather and other threatening emergencies in your local area, as well as AMBER alerts. The test alert message, sent at 2:18pm Eastern time, read, "Presidential Alert. THIS IS A TEST of the National Wireless Emergency Alert System. No action is needed.”
