January 16, 2017
WINDOW ROCK – On Jan. 9, the Navajo Nation Amber Alert and Emergency Alert Task Force under the direction of the Navajo Nation Division of Public Safety, Department of Emergency Management accomplished a huge milestone to bring the Integrated Public Alert & Warning System (IPAWS) to the Navajo Nation.
This system is greatly needed to provide all citizens within the Nation information on imminent threats (natural, man-made) and amber alerts.
“Mobile users will not be charged for receiving a Wireless Emergency Alert (WEA) and are automatically enrolled to receive them. This will ensure that all individuals inside the boarders of the Navajo Nation receive the alerts,” said Vice President Jonathan Nez.
