WHAT TO KNOW ABOUT WIRELESS EMERGENCY ALERTS (WEA)


Wireless Emergency Alerts (WEA) send free informational text messages to WEA-enabled cell phones within range of an imminent and dangerous local situation, severe weather event, or AMBER emergency.
  • The WEA notification is designed to get your attention and notify you with a unique sound and vibration.
  • Public safety officials use WEA to send you essential information whenever you are near the location of a life-threatening event.
  • You do not need to register to receive WEA notifications. You will automatically receive alerts if you have WEA-capable phone and your wireless carrier participates in the program.
  • To find out if your mobile device is capable of receiving WEA alerts, contact your mobile device carrier or visit CTIA The Wireless Association
  • Download the WEA Fact Sheet or view Frequently Asked Questions.
For more information on WEA Alerts, go to go to Ready.gov/alerts orReady.gov/alertas (Spanish).
