The message will be broadcast by cell towers for 30 minutes, so it's possible some people may get it later than 2:18 p.m. Right now, in cooperation with major wireless carriers, FEMA can deliver alerts nationally or to an area as small as a single county.
Aside from a few pertinent details about the alert (and the legalities supporting its existence), FEMA also released a mock-up image of what the message will look like on a smartphone.
Government officials estimated that the alert would reach upwards of 225 million United States cellphones or around 75 percent of all phones.
FEMA officials say the test will last about a half-hour, so some could receive the alert at different times.
The alert test, which is FEMA's first for the wireless emergency system - and is being coordinated with the Federal Communications Commission - will sound similar to an Amber Alert or flood watch warning. "We're constantly being bombarded by things so hopefully whatever messages are coming out of Washington won't get lost in the shuffle because, again, that's one more thing people are going to have coming at them", he said. Some cell phones will not receive the test message, and cell phones should only receive the message once.
A test of the new alert system is scheduled for this Wednesday after being postponed due to Hurricane Florence.
