2015 Wireless Emergency Alert Survey Seeks Feedback to Improve Accessibility of Emergency Alerts and Warnings

Georgia Tech’s Center for Advance Communications Policy, is conducting a survey on Wireless Emergency Alerts (WEA). The survey is designed to gauge user’s awareness of WEA, and the accessibility and usefulness of these type of messages. Responses will be used to create recommendations for improving the system that sends WEA messages, as well as the mobile/cell devices that receive them to ensure the same timely and effective access to alerts and warnings for people with disabilities as other mobile users. The survey is open to both individuals with and without disabilities.

The Center is offering an incentive for taking the 2015 WEA survey – a chance to win one of two $100 Amazon gift cards! You can access the survey at http://www.surveygizmo.com/s3/2071052/Wireless-Emergency-Alerts.
