How to create an Amber Alert style notification?

If you’ve ever received an Amber Alert or Severe Weather Warning alert you will know exactly what I’m referring to. This is an alert that has a unique ring and continues to ring and vibrate until you click to close it. The massage takes over your screen like this:

I’ve also used other apps in the past that use a similar alerting system. Active911 and IamResponding both use this type of notification system.

I am creating an application for emergency responders and they want this type of notifications to notify responders of new emergencies.

Anyone know how this is created? Is there a service like OneSignal that offers this type of notification?
