TV and radio
As soon as an AMBER Alert is issued, it goes on air (during TV programs for example as a tickertape or as an extra news flash). The news flash is automatically and digitally prepared.
Email with poster
When an AMBER Alert is issued, users immediately receive an email alert. This email alert often includes a picture of the missing child. The email also contains a printable AMBER Alert poster which can be posted in shops, community centers and schools.
Large TV screens
AMBER Alerts automatically appear on large TV screens in public spaces, for example supermarkets, cinemas, indoor children playgrounds, day care centers, swimming pools and sports centers.
AMBER Alerts are also shared on Facebook. Sign up here to receive AMBER Alerts on Facebook.
With the AMBER Alert RSS newsfeed organisations can develop their own applications to display AMBER Alerts.
Google’s Waze, the world’s leading community based traffic- and navigation app, shows AMBER Alerts and endangered missing children cases to its users. Users receive a pop-up message with a picture and description of the child.
On the website of AMBER Alert Malta you can find a Google map with all endangered missing children and active AMBER Alerts in Malta.
On many major news sites and outlets, a pop up screen or banner with the picture of the missing or abducted child automatically appears when an AMBER Alert is active and someone visits this website.
AMBER Alert poster
When the police issues an AMBER Alert, citizens can forward, display or print out an automatically generated poster with the picture of the missing child.
