It seems like the government is slowly injecting itself into even more of our lives by the day. They can now keep regular tabs on us via phone records and internet usage, and continue to ask us to pay fees and taxes to regulate and keep tabs on our property.

Last year, they did a national EAS test to make sure they had access to everyone's smart devices in their household, and the test was so successful, it seems they might be doing it again, soon.

If you remember, last year, FEMA did a test of the entire Emergency Alert System in October, that connected to almost every device connected to the internet. It also affected TV and radio programming.

People listening to TV or Radio likely heard something to the effect of...

"This is a nationwide test of the Emergency Alert System, issued by the Federal Emergency Management Agency, covering the United States from 14:20 hours to 14:50 hours ET. This is only a test. No action is required by the public."

EAS Alert 2023

Some saw the test as a good thing, and a way that the government can communicate with us during a national crisis or emergency situation. Others, however, were not so happy. Many believed it was the government testing whether or not they had access to all of our devices.

Regardless of how you felt about it last year, though, they plan on doing it again in 2024, though an exact date isn't yet known. FEMA says they are still analyzing data from 2023, but will still likely hold another test this year. It could also be pushed to 2025, depending on when the data is fully compiled, and what conclusions they come to.

So be prepared, the government will likely take over our phones again in the near future in Michigan. Just be ready.
