WEA is an alerting network designed to disseminate wireless emergency alerts to WEA-enabled devices. WEA allows the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) to deliver emergency warnings to specific geographic regions through the use of cell towers. After receiving a warning, local cell towers will broadcast a wireless alert to WEA-enabled devices. Wireless provider participation in WEA is voluntary.
At this time, these alerts will only be delivered to customers using WEA-enabled devices while operating on CBW's 3G and 4G network. Customers using CBW's 2G network or connected to the CBW network via a picocell or a Wi-Fi Internet connection will not receive the emergency alert warning provided by WEA.
