Don't be alarmed by 'Presidential Alert' sent to your phone
This means that any compatible cellphones that are switched on and within range of an active cell tower should receive the alert. The Integrated Public Alert and Warning System (IPAWS) is created to warn Americans in the event of a national emergency.
According to FEMA, the WEA is used to warn the public about risky weather, missing children, and other critical situations through alerts on cell phones. This new presidential alert is nationwide and only used for advance warning of national crises. "FEMA then sends the alerts to the wireless providers, which then push the alerts in turn to mobile phones in the impacted communities". The WEA was subsequently launched in 2012 to "assess the operational readiness of the infrastructure for distribution of a national message and determine whether improvements are needed".

However, the FEMA alerts are not blockable.
