Moving WEA Forward

Apr 16, 2018 Back

The deadly hurricanes of 2017, the Las Vegas shooting, the attempted terror attack in New York City and catastrophic California wildfires have highlighted the need for Wireless Emergency Alerts (WEA) to be revamped so it is in line with today’s technology. One of the first things you can do is learn more about WEA, and educate your leaders and elected officials.

Learn more about Wireless Emergency Alerts in the "Moving WEA Forward" one-pager.


We hope that you can take some time to add to our efforts. Filing an FCC Comment from your organization/jurisdiction or as an individual can help rich messaging capabilities for WEA that will help save lives. See our guide below for how to upload your letter to the FCC’s e-filing system. The technology already exists and the time to start the implementation is NOW.

File an FCC Comment Letter with our How-To Guide.
