Have you ever heard your phone make a really loud noise and the screen says AMBER Alert?

An AMBER Alert is an emergency response system about a missing person (usually a child).

AMBER Alerts go to cell phones, are shown on the TV, and/or electronic road signs.

Typically, AMBER Alerts will say the city and/or state and give a LIC (license plate number) of a car the person might be in.

Just because the car is in another state, doesn’t mean the car is not in your area.

When you see an AMBER Alert, please “be on the lookout” for the vehicle it is describing. You could save a life.


If you see the car that is on the AMBER Alert, call 911 immediately.

Don’t think other people will call 911.
