…out if you get a  text message  on your cell phone from the Trump Administration next week.  The message will be sent by FEMA as a test of the system required by the bill Pres. Obama signed in 2016.   It basically will allow the President to use the emergency alert system,  which began in 2012 and has issued over 36,000 alerts for situations such as missing children,  extreme weather and natural disaster.

Don’t panic — you can opt out of natural disaster or missing children alerts.
