What are Wireless Emergency Alerts or Commercial Mobile Alerts?

Wireless Emergency Alert (WEA), also known as Commercial Mobile Alert (CMA), is a public safety system that allows customers who own certain wireless phones and other enabled mobile devices to receive geographically-targeted, text-like messages alerting them of imminent threats to safety in their area. Wireless companies volunteer to participate in WEA.
