Good app. However the new version makes seeing alerts from "Other locations" more difficult. All of my locations are "Main locations". I would really like to see all alerts for all locations on the main screen without heavy user interface mal-design needing multiple touches to see things.

Have had this app for a couple years, but now as long as there is an active alert, they will repeat every 5-10 minutes, which gets quite annoying when you have 3 active alerts that are active for a 36 hour period, & no way to suspend notification of those alerts. It's all or nothing, either they repeat every 5 to 10 minutes, or you turn off notifications completely & recieve none. Very frustrating. There are other apps available & WITHOUT the insistent NAGGING of an active alert. UNINSTALLING!!!

Hi Michael – The ‘alert overload’ you were experiencing was in part due to the winter weather system last week. That created some unique issues due to traffic volume. The repeated alerts were resolved on the 24th. Our apologies. In addition, the version of the App you had installed, 2.12.1, had some known bugs which newer versions have fixed.

Will be uninstalling this app. There used to be a nice section with a checklist of items you should have in your home to prep for a disaster in your car/ area. That is no longer available. You could also get weather alerts for multiple areas which is now gone. The article under Prepare are nice, but not worth it if I can't have the basic checklist. Disappointed.

Dear Domonique, really appreciate your suggestion. We will consider it and improve our app in the new version. If you have questions or suggestions please contact us at fema-app@fema.dhs.gov.

What's new

- New Push Notifications setting to temporarily silence push notifications for alerts. Now you can choose to silence push notifications for 1 hour, 8 hours or 24 hours. During this time period you will still receive push notifications from us, but there will be no sound or vibration.
- Updated TalkBack controls on Alert Preferences.
