    I don't think I've heard of it before. Where did you see it?

    its a way of sending emergency messages out to the public in the event of a disaster or amber alert, evacuation of a large area and so on . you should hope you never have one appear on your device and if one does follow the instruction quicky.

    It's not only for public emergency use. Companies can set one up for certain employee groups that need to receive broadcast messages about business matters. Not very common but possible.

    As I understand it you have to have it set up by your Carrier and it ain't free. For the emergency notifications it's usually provided as a public service, Corporations pay for their service, which is why it's not a common practice.
