Emergency alert system scheduled to launchThe federal government and wireless phone service providers have built a system - called Commercial Mobile Alert System (CMAS) or Wireless Emergency Alerts (WEA) - that will send a text-like message to your phone. Thankfully, though we came pretty close, the development of these systems proved unnecessary for their intended use. CONELRAD, its successor the Emergency Broadcast System, and the current Emergency Alert System are all designed as a way for the president to quickly address the public in the event of a catastrophe like a nuclear attack or imminent meteor strike. For the most part, activation of the Emergency Alert System is automated, with alerts broadcasting from a central source (like the National Weather Service) and quickly filtering through different points until it reaches your ear holes as the blood-curdling, demonic scream of a far away computer program.
Those awful screeches you hear at the beginning of the Emergency Alert System are digitized codes that communicate the type of threat, area (counties) threatened, and how long the threat is in place. Register for University of Detroit Mercy emergency communications and be among the first to receive alerts on class cancellations or other emergency notices via text message and email through the Rave Mobile Safety system.

Among the many ways the country prepared for the possibility of getting wiped out in some radioactive hellscape involved an intricate network of warning systems that spanned from coast to coast, quickly alerting residents to seek shelter and brace for impact.
Government would order all radio and television stations to immediately stop broadcasting, and select sources would begin transmitting emergency messages over 640 AM or 1240 AM. Back in 1971, NORAD tried to test the Emergency Broadcast System but accidentally transmitted the wrong message, leading some stations to go through the motions as if there were a real national emergency. Other than that, the federal government conducted a nationwide test of the Emergency Alert System in November 2011 to see whether or not an activation on the national level would actually work in an emergency. Now you can use your Android device to play realistic-looking Emergency Alert System (formerly known as Emergency Broadcast System) alerts. Other alerts include movie and video-game inspired scenarios such as nuclear attacks or zombie virus pandemics (EAS Simulator Plus or Pro).

You can leave a request of an emergency scenario you'd like to see on future app releases in your review!
The service will be free and will provide geographically targeted wireless emergency alerts for life-threatening events such as: tornadoes, flash floods, hurricanes, typhoons, tsunamis, dust storms, extreme winds, blizzards and ice storms. The text alerts will be brief and will inform consumers to seek additional information or immediately seek shelter if necessary. The new system will also include AMBER Alerts for missing children and Presidential Alerts for national emergencies.
