WAFF is your First Alert Station, and we strive to keep you updated on the day's events, breaking news, weather and sports.

One of the tools we use is the news alert mechanism through the free 48 Mobile News App. The application allows us to send alerts to your mobile device at any time - day or night.

Throughout any given 24-hour period, we send out all types of alerts, ranging from breaking news to weather bulletins, all the way to minor programming changes or newscast promotions.

We understand that these alerts can sometimes interrupt your lives. It is our intention to be there when you need us - but not drive you crazy with intrusions you may feel are not important.

We want to let you know you have the option to choose which alerts you receive and which to ignore.

To see which alerts you currently receive, there are a few easy steps to take:

  1. Open the 48 News Mobile App on your device.
  2. Tap the menu key (the three lines near the top-left of your screen).
  3. Tap the gear icon near the bottom-right of the menu to open App Settings.
  4. Choose which alerts you receive by tapping "on" or "off."

If you'd like to opt out of alerts altogether, tap "off" next to "ALERTS."

Here's a brief run-down of the alerts we offer:

BREAKING: Breaking and developing stories, plus new details to existing stories
