About Wireless Emergency Alerts (WEA)

Wireless Emergency Alerts (WEA) are free messages that are provided as part of a national public safety system that allows customers with a WEA capable wireless device to receive free, geographically targeted emergency alerts from authorized state or local agencies.

 

There are three types of WEA alerts:

 

  • Alerts involving imminent threats to life or property issued by the National Weather Service or other authorized emergency management agency
  • Amber Alerts about missing children
  • Alerts issued by the President

Please click About Wireless Emergency Alerts for additional information like what the alerts look/sound like, why you did/did dot receive one, WEA capable handsets and more!
