If you fell asleep in the City of Boise last night, odds are, you were awaken by a loud and terrifying noise. There is absolutely NOTHING pleasant about that noise that plays out of your phone, most commonly associated with an Amber Alert. It sounds like a mix of a war siren and something that would play out of the movie 'The Purge'.

Well, it played on just about everyone's phones in Boise last night--at about 12:30 a.m.

There's a way to prevent that from ever happening again, though.
