CTIA - Wirless Amber Alerts & Emergency Alerts
CTIA - Amber Alerts via WEA
Formerly known as the Wireless AMBER Alert™ program, AMBER Alerts are now a part of the Wireless Emergency Alerts (WEA) program. Millions of cellphone users across the country receive these free, automatic text-like alerts about abducted children whose lives are in danger in their area as part of the WEA program.
CTIA and the wireless industry joined the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) and Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) to offer WEA to supplement the existing Emergency Alert System. Consumers with WEA-capable wireless devices and WEA service in their areas are automatically enrolled to receive AMBER Alerts for free, along with the Presidential and Imminent Threat Alerts.
