If I signed up to receive Wireless AMBER Alerts from Cricket in conjunction with the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children (NCMEC) will I also receive AMBER Alerts through the Wireless Emergency Alerts?
Yes. You may receive AMBER alerts from both the NCMEC and Wireless Emergency Alerts(WEA) if you have elected to participate in the NCMEC Wireless AMBER Alerts and you are within a WEA affected area. The AMBER Alerts broadcasted through the WEA system are geographically targeted. If you have signed up for NCMEC Wireless AMBER Alerts, they are based on the zip codes you designated.
