This isn’t exactly new news, but I stumbled across it last night and decided it was important enough to post. Take a look at the picture below. The van pretty much says it all. Visit wirelessamberalerts.org and enter your phone number to receive wireless amber alerts for your local area on your BlackBerry.
Wireless Amber Alerts
The membership of CTIA-The Wireless Association®, The Wireless Foundation, the United States Department of Justice and the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children came together to offer the Wireless AMBER Alerts Initiative.
How does the Wireless AMBER Alerts Initiative work?
An abducted child, age 17 years or younger, is reported to a local law enforcement agency.
If the abducted child case meets the recommended criteria, law enforcement issues an AMBER Alert and National Center for Missing & Exploited Children (NCMEC) is notified and provided with the information to include in the alert.
NCMEC formats the AMBER Alert message and sends it electronically to Syniverse.
Syniverse sends the AMBER Alert message to wireless carriers participating in the Wireless AMBER Alerts initiative.
Participating carriers send the AMBER Alert message, in text message format, to their subscribers that have opted in to receive the notices.
