EBS: Wireless Emergency Alert (WEA) Handling and Event Name Guidelines

Below is the guidelines for how Everbridge handles Wireless Emergency Alert (WEA) Event Names and the WEA Handling values available to them. Each Event Event Name yields a default WEA Handling value while the rest are either optional or unavailable.

For example, by selecting the 911 Telephone Outage Emergency event, the WEA Handling value Public Safety is the default. You can optionally select Imminent Threat or WEA Test. However, Amber will not be available for you to select. This is reflected when building a notification for the WEA publishing channel in Everbridge Suite.

The table below is a guideline to understanding which of the four WEA Handling values are available per Event Name:
