There is an opt out on IPhones for text messages or phone calls at specific times with exceptions for specified contacts....but it doesn't work for amber allerts
They override that opt out.

Of course. Because everyone is going to jumpout of bed in the middle of the night and go out looking for a missing kid that is probaby with the other parent.
Then again any slacker that is still in bed at 0500 needs a wakeup call.

I just tweeted on their page..

"There should be an opt out feature for this service, or everyone should call in to 911 with false sightings, that will put an end to this annoying service overnight. **** Off!"

This was the what the Amber Alert was about..

AMBER ALERT in Alberta as authorities say 4 year old Isabella Darnel, 3 year old Elijah Darnel, 9 month old Arlo Darnel, are believed to have been abducted from their home in Fox Creek, allegedly by their mother. Please share with folks you may know in Alberta.

Yawn, the mother took her own children.. and how is this my problem.. could care less. This used to be a Family court issue, not my problem. fukk off with the notifications for stupid shit.

Look folks, we live in a 24 hr society now. Not everyone sleeps from 10-6 or 11-7 or whatever. I guess people who work night shift should gt all pissed off and indignant whenever an alert goes out over the system during the day time?

I also like how idiots think a parent kidnapping their own child doesn't constitute an emergency. Maybe not to you but I recall at least one incident in Ontario before the amber alert system existed where a child was kidnapped by one of their parents, who then proceeded to jump off a 401 overpass into oncoming traffic with said child.

But hey, at least nobody got woke up over it or had an episode of the Bachelorette interrupted over it. And that's ALL that matters, right Boomer?

Um, did you read the rest of the paragraph? A murdered child is not simply a "domestic spat".

Okay, but how about having an opt out like they do in the USA.

Simply put, I could give a shit about somebody else's brat.

Also a loud alarm disturbing 1,000,000 plus people at home, what do they think people are going to go out and start looking, like an easter egg hunt? Just what the police need, 1,000,000 detectives on the street.

Or better yet, hey I'm driving let me look at my phone to see what the emergency was, fukk I didn't see that car in front, or kid crossing the street. Thud.

Happened again last night....Just as I had gone to sleep.
It seems to me that they have the technology to issue the warning to specific cell towers in ever widening circles, and not blanket the whole province instantly
It takes 10 hrs by car to reach Kapuskasing.
They would have found the kid and her father before they woke up everyone in Ontario.

911 ABUSERS: Petition to punish Amber Alert crybabies gaining steam

July 25, 2019 12:26 PM EDT
The petition created by a Toronto woman calling for the Ontario government to change the law to crackdown on frivolous 911 calls proliferating due to province-wide Amber Alert notifications. (Change.org/Screen grab)
Ontarians want punishment for crybabies who call 911 to whine and pout about receiving notifications through the Amber Alert system — a petition directed at Premier Doug Ford and Attorney General Doug Downey has already amassed over 75,000 signatures in a few day’s time.
“I was very upset about people calling 911 to complain, they’re taking time away from operators for frivolous complaints when there are other people needing them for emergencies,” says Toronto resident Dalia Monacelli to the Sun.
She created the petition calling for first-world malcontents venting about Amber Alerts to 911 operators to be slapped with fines.
“It’s about children, too. How can they be so heartless to children that could be in danger or dying in these moments?”
Amber Alerts override some attempts to block them

The Ontario government seems to be taking note the outcry.
This week, Premier Ford said his government would look into what can be done.
“When a child is missing, we all have a role to play as members of our community. Many children have been located as a direct result of Amber Alerts – but it only works if everyone receives these alerts. The bottom line is simple: a missing child is an emergency,” said Ontario Solicitor General Sylvia Jones.
“We are considering all options to ensure people are not wasting critical emergency resources.”
Each of the first five Amber Alert notifications sent to smart phones in Ontario under the new system led to waves of people calling 911 across the province.
The system, created by Alert Ready, sends a loud notification to all smart phones in Ontario.
Phone users cannot opt out of the system and some models of phones will still make the loud alarm sound even if they are on silent or sleep mode.
Turned off phones or ones on airplane mode should guarantee people to avoid getting loud Amber Alert notifications when sleeping.
“It’s still an educational thing, the lack of understanding of how the system works. Too many times people think ‘Oh, it’s the police sending out these mass messages,’” said Peel Region Police Cst. Danny Marttini.
“When OPP sends out [the alert] it goes to the [telecommunication] companies, it’s the companies that are allowing it go out broad.”
Niagara police rose awareness of the problem back in May when they released audio of an irate man swearing at one of the force’s operators for being awoken by an Amber Alert text message.
Marttini says those griping about Amber Alerts cannot be charged for public mischief like those calling and filing false police reports.
Alberta passed 911 legislation in 2014 which allows municipal police in that province to fine frivolous 911 callers with hefty fines of $5,000 for first time offenders and $10,000 for repeat offenders.

Late-night Amber Alert triggers widespread complaints to 911 province-wide
Graeme Gordon

(@legocopgta/Twitter)
Despite plenty of media coverage on its futility and public disgust tying up 911 operators, first-world complainers are still clogging emergency lines across Ontario to gripe about being woken up because a child’s life may be in danger.
Around midnight on Wednesday the father of a child allegedly broke into a house in Brantford while accomplices distracted the mother.
Police said the man then allegedly assaulted and threatened the mother before grabbing their two-year-old child and fleeing in a getaway car.

911 ABUSERS: Petition to punish Amber Alert crybabies gaining steam
Amber Alerts override some attempts to block them
Angry 9-1-1 caller swears at police over early morning Amber Alert: Audio
Brantford police notified the OPP, who are responsible for issuing Amber Alerts.
Three hours later just after 3 a.m. a province-wide mass notification was sent to Ontarians’ cell phones, waking many people up.
This led to yet another round of angry people tying up 911 operators across the province.
“There were approximately 100 calls in the 911 queue, over forty were confirmed to be from people complaining. One woman in particular advised that the only way the Amber Alert ‘problem’ was going to stop would be to flood 911 with calls, she then called back a number of times,” said Toronto Police Const. Allyson Douglas-Cook.
“Some calls were from people calling to ask what happened, and a number were from people asking how they could assist,”
“The complaints we’re receiving (Thursday morning weren’t) necessarily just people from our community, they’re people from Oshawa, GTA, Ottawa,” said Brantford Police Const. Shane Seibert.
The Brantford Police were flooded with calls to its communications section, 911 and public email account.
“3 o’clock in the f–king morning — no — I haven’t seen her. This went off five f–king times. I am in Oshawa . What in the f–k are you thinking?” One Amber Alert complainer said.
In Waterloo Region, 18 calls were made to 911 in a three-minute span right after the Amber Alert was issued, although only five stayed on the line to complain.
If an emergency operator is unavailable during high call periods, the call continues to ring indefinitely until an operator becomes available.
On a positive note, Hamilton Police received only three minor complaints, as well as nine tips on the location of the kidnappers.
Less than an hour after the alert the child was found safe, triggering another mass notification being sent to Ontarians’ phones.
The child’s father and three others were arrested for their involvement in the alleged kidnapping.
The latest Amber Alert comes on the heels of a petition calling for the Ontario government to make a new law enabling police to fine 911 abusers — similar to an Alberta law allowing police to slap first-offenders with a $5,000 fine, and $10,000 for repeat offenders.
The petition has gained another 13,000 signatures in the last day, by press time it was up to nearly 88,000.
Other more reasonable people took to social media Thursday morning to complain about an emergency system that overrides sleep, silence and do-not-disturb modes on some cell phones.
How to avoid middle of the night Amber Alert wake-ups
Unlike Americans, Canadians are unable to opt-out of emergency notifications on their smartphones.
Even so, there are ways you can guarantee yourself a sleep uninterrupted by Amber Alerts.
Some models don’t emit sounds when they’re on silent or do-not-disturb mode, but others can be overridden, according to Canadian Wireless Telecommunications Association.
Depending on the device, some newer Android phones offer Canadian users an emergency alert opt-out option in their notification settings.
There’s no guarantee this will work, however.
The only foolproof way is to put your phone in airplane mode or turn it off completely.
The Amber Alert system was created by Alert Ready, which the CRTC said back in May was in talks to see how the system could be improved.
Complaints about the Amber Alerts should to be directed to the CRTC’s website.

I have learned to sleep through the alert and ignore it. I don't/won't even look at the screen until the morning. I can't help when sleeping anyways so no need for me to see it.
