The Federal Emergency Management Agency is testing a new presidential alert system this week that allows the president to send messages to all phones in the United States.
FEMA has warned it as the first national test of the presidential surveillance test with a warning that allows the president to deal with the state in the event of an emergency.
When using the Wireless Emergency Alert System (WEA), anyone with a mobile service must receive messages on his phone.
"This is a test of the emergency radar warning system throughout the country, there is no need to do anything", a message that will be sent to ET on Thursday at 2:18 PM.
After several minutes the alarm system (EAS) sends a similar test message on television, radio and wired video service.
Emergency notifications are not new and alarm systems have been used and tested for a long time in the United States to warn civilians about local and regional accidents, such as AMBER warnings, such as missing children and climatic violence.
But the president's warning has not yet been tested. Unlike other alarms, citizens can not remove the president's warning.
In 2006, with the adoption of the WARN law under the Bush administration, the president sent warnings across the country and created a state-of-the-art emergency alert system to replace the outdated infrastructure. Since these warnings are surprising (and as planned), this system aims to modernize the signaling system for populations evolving from ever more television to mobile technology.
These presidential warnings remain at the discretion of the president and can be sent for any reason, but the experts are not concerned about the misuse of the system.
But the system is not perfect. Earlier this year, a warning that "the ballistic missile line is progressing", sent a false warning to the residents, a panic hit on Hawaii. The message said: "It is not an exercise."
