Wireless Emergency Alerts (WEA) are emergency messages sent by authorized government alerting authorities through your mobile carrier. Government partners include local and state public safety agencies, FEMA, the FCC, the Department of Homeland Security, and the National Weather Service.

Alerts received at the right time can help keep you safe during an emergency. With WEA, alerts can be sent to your mobile device when you may be in harm’s way, without need to download an app or subscribe to a service.

Such alerts include:

  •    Extreme weather warnings
  •    Local emergencies requiring evacuation or immediate action
  •    AMBER Alerts
  •    Presidential Alerts during a national emergency
