What is the Wireless Public Alerting Service, also called WPAS?

WPAS is a technology that allows emergency alerting authorities, such as the Ontario Provincial Emergency Operations Centre, the Ontario Provincial Police (for missing persons alerts), and Environment Canada (for weather alerts), to target a particular geographic area and send emergency alerts to all WPAS-compatible cell phones within that targeted area. Only those types of emergencies which are life threatening and time-sensitive will be broadcast over this medium, which could include severe weather, serious environmental or industrial incidents, and criminal emergencies.

In these events, the alert will cause the phone to light up and display the emergency message, and will be accompanied by a unique alerting tone and vibration. It is an automatic service, therefore no subscription is required. Please follow these links for more information
