Thousands in Washington state were jarred awake at 3 am due to technology embedded in newer phones to send Amber Alerts. This technology will also be used to send FEMA alerts, which I would assume includes terrorist threat announcements- according to the story -
"The wireless emergency alert system was launched in January of this year by the feds. Besides amber alerts citizens will get natural disaster threat notifications and important presidential messages.
Cellphone customers can opt out of getting amber alerts or the natural disaster notifications but they cannot avoid important presidential messages."
