360 Character Wireless Emergency Alert (WEA) Messages
Approved for Experimental Implementation
Data Mining Tool
Outreach / Education
All Forecast Regions
FCC Rule changes for May 2019 will allow Wireless Emergency Alerts to be expanded to 360 characters. The new, expanded messages will provide wireless customers with more actionable information, as compared to the current 90 character messages that primarily just alert people to the fact that a warning has been issued for their area. The expansion of the message length will significantly change the amount of information conveyed about a hazard during an emergency. Examples of new 360-character messages are provided for public feedback.
