Take the 2015 Wireless Emergency Alert (WEA) Survey!

Jun 2 2015

Wireless Emergency Alerts (WEA) can be received on cell phones across the country. These alerts are automatic, provide AMBER alerts, and weather emergency notifications.

If you have a cell phone, Georgia Tech’s Center for Advanced Communications Policy is interested in your level of awareness of WEA messages. Please take this survey today.

This research is being funded by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS), Science and Technology Directorate, with a goal to improve understanding of public response to mobile alerts and warnings.
