The first-ever Presidential alert was sent across the country at 2:18 pm eastern time, on the 3rd of October.

The message was merely a test for the system that read “Presidential Alert: THIS IS A TEST of the National Wireless Emergency Alert System. No action is needed.” While many may believe the alert is controlled by President Donald Trump himself, the alert is actually managed by a Federal Emergency Management Agency.

Many WHHS students were puzzled at the alert on the screen and were left uninformed about the event that transpired at the end of the school day.

Like many, Junior Jeremy Hedian “had no idea that the test was going to happen.”

Though many were not aware of the new alert system, the students at WHHS believe the test is a great idea in transmitting emergency information effectively to a large population.

Sophomore Matthew Emeric believes the Presidential alert is very important “because not everyone might be aware of a dangerous situation occurring.”
