If you have a board meeting around, say 2:15 Wednesday afternoon, you might want to let your boss know that you have to check an important text message... from the president, himself. Yep. You're that important.

According to an article, for the first time ever, Americans are set to receive the first text alert at 2:18pm, EST. This is a test of the National Presidential Alert System that will let a sitting president warn the nation about a possible crisis. Anything from a weather emergency to a significant international act, say a weapons launch, can be texted to all Americans. Hopefully the kinks have been worked out since that unfortunate missile alert in Hawaii left the island is state of panic. Hopefully.

So, if you have cell service and your device is on at 2:18pm tomorrow, don't panic. This is only a test.
