Wireless Emergency Alerts (WEA)

Cricket Communications Inc. has chosen to offer wireless emergency alerts.  Wireless emergency alerts are geographically targeted notifications regarding emergency situations from the President of the United States, the National Weather Service (NWS), Emergency Operations Centers, and Amber Alerts.  In order to receive wireless emergency alerts, you must have a WEA-capable phone.  There is no additional charge for these alerts.  Wireless emergency alerts may not be available if a subscriber is outside the Cricket Wireless service area.

For more details about the service and capable devices, please ask a sales representative, or go to WEA FAQ’s.
