Require FEMA to establish minimum requirements for state and local governments to participate in IPAWS within 120 days of receiving the subcommittees recommendations.
IPReady does so much more than simply allow us to connect with IPAWS for EAS CAP compliance.
It is an honor to be appointed to the FEMA IPAWS Committee, and support its commitment to ensuring the nations alert and warning infrastructure continues to deliver timely and effective warnings that keep citizens safe, said Hall.
IPAWS is a program operated by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) designed to make alerts more effective for the nation.
FEMA established the IPAWS Subcommittee in accordance with the IPAWS Modernization Act of 2015 to review IPAWS and make recommendations to the National Advisory Council.
Initiated in 2004, FEMA's IPAWS program is intended to integrate new and existing alert capabilities, including EAS, into a comprehensive "system of systems.
We want to create a mechanism that can be easily replicated, allowing any broadcaster to send emergency information that is CAP-compliant, that is integrated into the IPAWS system, and that can reliably reach on-the-go Americans in the ways they access other information today," added McCoskey.
The IPAWS test message specifically included English and Spanish versions of the test alert, high quality digital audio, and text files to be used to create an accessible video crawl.
Under the Government Interface Design Specification for the FEMA (Federal Emergency Management Agency) IPAWS (Integrated Public Alert and Warning System) Federal Alert Aggregator/Gateway, operators that "opt-in" to CMAS must deploy a system by April 7, 2012.
Of utmost concern is the poor-quality audio some EAS participants experienced, making them unable to deliver the Spanish-language alert because they received the test from an over-the-air broadcast source before their EAS equipment performed its regular check of the IPAWS Internet feed, which typically occurs every 30 seconds.
The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) is accepting applications for individuals to serve on the new Integrated Public Alert and Warning System, or IPAWs
, subcommittee of the National Advisory Council (NAC).
