Can messages be sent to Voice Over Internet Protocol (VOIP) phones?

Yes. The Emergency Alert system can send warning messages to Voice Over Internet Protocol (VOIP) telephones if the VOIP telephone has a 10 digit geographic number starting with (02), (03), (07) or (08) and the registered service address is correct. Contact your service provider to check the registered service address.

People should be adequately prepared in the event of an emergency, continue to use a range of information sources and stay aware of local conditions. You should not wait to receive a warning message before you act.
