And, just as I was falling asleep another one came through at 1:50am. Hearing that tone sends chills down your body especially when it is played loudly on a phone right beside you...

 

I heard they were planning this but didn't think they actually implemented a system yet but anyway - thanks Civil Defense as I am wide awake now, your system works.
