Effectively Participate in the AMBER Alert Program

To help the truckstop and travel plaza industry more effectively participate in the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children's (NCMEC) AMBER Alert program, the NCMEC and the NATSO Foundation have prepared this list of frequently asked questions

In 2011, the NATSO Foundation and the NCMEC joined together in support of the U.S. Department of Justice’s AMBER Alert program to safely recover abducted children. The NATSO Foundation emails AMBER Alerts to truckstop and travel plaza locations as they are issued by the NCMEC. This system is designed to deliver the potentially lifesaving alerts to travel plazas in the area of an abduction.
