The presidential alert meme is here for all of your emergencies

The presidential alert meme is here for all of your emergencies

The first Presidential Alert deployed on Wednesday at 11:18 a.m. PT/2:18 p.m. ET as a test run. The phone has to be on and within range of an active cell tower during the test, and the alert won't interrupt phone calls or appear on phones with an active data session in the background.

Others altered the words of the message, including the Brooklyn Nets basketball team who tweeted: "THIS IS A TEST OF THE BKN WIRELESS ALERT SYSTEM".

Congress has placed limits on when the president can trigger such a warning, saying it must relate to a natural or man-made disaster or public safety threat.

There was no way to opt out of the test.

FEMA will still test the EAS a few minutes after they sent out the WEA. The plaintiffs said the alert system fails to give people the chance to opt out.

But some people with phones that met these criteria did not receive the text message.

You can block the test message by putting your smart phone in Airplane Mode, or by turning your phone off.

Petrol, diesel prices slashed by Rs 2.50 per litre
Jaitley said he on Wednesday met Oil Minister Dharmendra Pradhan and inter-ministerial consultations continued on Thursday. Diesel is being sold at Rs 75.45 per litre in New Delhi , Rs 79.79 per litre in Chennai and Rs 77.30 per litre in Kolkata.

The header for the notification will read "Presidential Alert". It is the first test of the emergency system.

The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) and Federal Communications Commission originally scheduled the test for September, but they pushed it back due to Hurricane Florence.

The law establishing the alert says it can not be sent out for any reason other than "a natural disaster, act of terrorism or other man-made disaster or threat to public safety", according to NowThis.

No matter what you were doing or where you were, everyone got the same alert. We have strong laws and federal rules to ensure any use of these kinds of alerts, which are activated directly by FEMA, and not the president, are used appropriately. This will be the fourth nationwide test of the EAS after similar tests in 2011, 2016, and 2017. "No action is required". The WEA system was established a decade ago and became operational in 2012.

Comic Kathy Griffin, a longtime Trump critic, used her Twitter account to show a phony Presidential Alert reading: "FAILED COMIC KATHY GRIFFIN IS TRYING TO DESTROY A GREAT MAN, BRETT KAVANAUGH!"

A group of New Yorkers filed a lawsuit in federal court in NY arguing they should not be compelled to receive the alerts under their right to free speech. They failed, at least when it came to the test. J.B.

The judge asked a government lawyer if there were standards in place to prevent someone from using the system for political purposes. Mistakes like that could make people nervous about this new nationwide alert.
