Glossary Term:
Wireless Emergency Alerts

WEAs can relay AMBER, Presidential and Imminent Threat alerts to mobile phones using cell broadcast technology that will not get backlogged during times of emergency. Most commercially available phones will be WEA-capable by the end of 2014. Wireless customers are not charged for the delivery of Wireless Emergency Alerts. WEA will "pop up" on a device's screen and will not have to be opened like ordinary SMS text messages.
