October 2019 - The Wireless RERC submitted a letter to the FCC responding to their notice regarding Information Collection Being Reviewed by the Federal Communications Commission: Enhanced Geo-Targeted Wireless Emergency Alerts [WT Docket No. 10-254: DA 12-1745]. We supported the FCC’s initiative to collect data on the geo-targeting capabilities of WEA messages using an embedded link to the survey within the message. The proposed data collection method will improve the ecological validity of the survey results, as the survey will be taken in an uncontrived setting. Our letter also recommended that the FCC, at a later date, consider collecting data on factors impacting WEA efficacy for people with disabilities.
