CREDO: The Trump administration plans to force a “Presidential Alert” to nearly every cell phone in America as part of the new FEMA emergency alert system. We are 100% against the idea of this administration having direct access to our CREDO Mobile members in this way. If there is any way to abuse this system, we know Trump and his corrupt associates will find it. We understand there will be an initial test of the presidential alert system on October 3, 2018 at 2:19 pm EDT and 2:20 pm EDT. The FEMA site confirms the details as we understand them today. What can you do? Join us in protesting by turning off your phone during the alert. Presidential Alert message tests are currently scheduled for: Oct. 3, 2018 at 2:19 pm EDT and 2:20 pm EDT... for many of us this message and test is unwanted, intrusive and potentially triggering.
