OK let's look at this from where you live

In what markets is Wireless Emergency Alerts (WEA) or Commercial Mobile Alert System (CMAS) available?
AT&T has launched CMAS in these areas as of 1Q 2012:
  • New York City area (All 5 boroughs)
  • Washington, D.C.
  • Portland, Oregon
Additional markets will be added over time, as we continue growing and adding the technology in markets across the United States through 2012 and beyond.

This is AT&T
But still should the button not be there ?

The government will advise you when there is an alien invasion via an SMS message, allowing you to safely evacuate and survive.
And where exactly will I evacuate ( I like that word ) to? Can alien see me under water?

Edit: my stomach is full of gas lately, damn antibiotics. I need another plan.
