When national crises occurred in the past, the government alerted Americans through cable, radio, satellite, and other television programs. The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) is now going to send alerts to the phones of all Americans so that they can get vital information across faster and more securely. In order to test this system, FEMA was planning to send a test alert on September 20. However, the government organization was swept up in helping the Carolinas recover from Hurricane Florence and the alert test was moved to Wednesday, October 3 at 2:18 pm EST. For McIntosh students, this means that all of their phones will go off during the middle of fifth period.
