Today at 11:18 a.m. PST, the Department of Homeland Security and FEMA will for the first time test a Presidential Alert System. Fox News reported that they are reaching "Roughly 225 million electronic devices across the U.S." But don't worry, this system was not designed to let the president text you about his day. Rules built around the alert only allow for a sounding of the alert when there is a national disaster or the public is in peril.
