When IPAWS matures, local public safety officials should be able to access IPAWS and originate messages through a number of methods and modes including commercial vendors, cellular broadcast, and the Emergency Alert System. Presumably, Mr. Lucero will talk about the latest efforts.
The webinar will be held Wednesday, August 4th. The best way to access it is to go to the FEMA Disaster Management web site and follow the link to sign-up for the Public Safety Officials practitioner email list. And, if you miss it, the Disaster Management web site usually archives their webinars.
We hope Mr. Lucero will also discuss how local officials can provide input into how message origination will work.
All the best,
