Wireless Emergency Alert Capable Devices

WEA is a public safety system that allows customers who own certain wireless phones and other compatible mobile devices to receive geographically-targeted, text-like messages alerting them of imminent threats to safety in their area.

Appalachian Wireless transmits wireless emergency alerts throughout its entire geographic service area, but not all devices are equipped to receive wireless emergency alerts. The devices listed below are WEA-capable, meaning that they are capable of receiving wireless emergency alerts. Some devices may require that you download software updates or change the controls in your settings to receive alerts. If you have questions, please consult your user manual, or you may contact a sales associate who will attempt to assist you.
