On October 18, 2006, April Green, one of the characters in the TV series Jericho said "Our world has changed".

The viewing public was exposed, during that episode called "The Federal Response" to what would have the IPAWS look and feel.

During the show, every phone in the community of 5000 in western Kansas came to life with a message from the Under Secretary of Homeland Security.

The internet started working again.

The Emergency Alert System came on otherwise dark television sets.

It's unclear how the writers of Jericho came up with this idea but the inclusion in the show is forward-thinking.

The fans of the show were given some insight what the future might hold, should that disaster befall America.
