Cell Phone Signal Booster Raises Awareness of Government Wireless Emergency Alerts

Press Release

May 8, 2016

CellPhoneSignalBooster.us, a supplier of cell phone signal boosters[1], encourages all cell phone users to ensure that their cell phone is capable of receiving, and set to receive, all Wireless Emergency Alerts (WEA) to ensure their safety and the safety of those around them.

A Wireless Emergency Alert (WEA) is a short emergency notification regarding a critical event that is delivered to mobile devices in a targeted geography. WEAs are a complimentary public safety service provided by authorized government senders through the Emergency Alert System, EAS. These emergency messages are sent through mobile carriers to keep the public informed of any imminent threat to their safety or to notify the public of any missing person alerts in the area.  

Timely WEAs keep people safe during an emergency and notify the public of emergency and other critical situations occurring in their area. Examples of WEAs include Presidential alerts in the case of national emergency, AMBER alerts for a missing person, imminent danger alerts, and a variety of severe weather warnings from the National Weather Service including tsunami, tornado, flash flood, hurricane, dust storm, and extreme wind warnings.

EAS (Emergency Alert System) is a broadcasting function, whereas WEA (Wireless Emergency Alerts) is a cell phone equipment function. In order to receive WEAs, a person must first have a WEA-enabled mobile device, and second, be located in the area targeted for the broadcast alert. Some alerts are national, some state-wide and other highly local. The following link that can be bookmarked or its link saved, provides a list of wireless emergency alert capable cell phones[2], including instructions for setting the device to receive, or not receive, Wireless Emergency Alerts.  Most major manufacturers offer WEA capable smart phones including Apple, Blackberry, Casio, Google, HTC, Kyocera, LG, Microsoft, Motorola, Nokia, Pantech, and Samsung.

Not only must the mobile device or cell phone be WEA capable, it must also have the appropriate reception capability to receive the alert. Since timing can be crucial in the case of an emergency, cell phone users that have reception issues or experience areas of weak signals should take immediate action to ensure they consistently receive a strong signal and are always able to receive a WEA. For weak signal reception, a cell phone signal booster can be used to ensure consistent reception in any home, office, or vehicle.
