3 What is IPAWS? The Integrated Public Alert and Warning System (IPAWS) is the nation’s next-generation infrastructure of alert and warning networks expanding upon the traditional audio-only radio and television Emergency Alert System (EAS) by providing one message over more media to more people before, during, and after a disaster. The vision of IPAWS builds and maintains an effective, reliable, integrated, flexible and comprehensive system that enables the American people to receive alert and warning information through as many means as possible. IPAWS ensures the President can alert and warn the public under all conditions. IPAWS will provide federal, state, territorial, tribal, and local warning authorities the capabilities to alert and warn their respective communities of all hazards impacting public safety and well-being via multiple communications pathways.
4 Why IPAWS? Since 2004, FEMA has served as the Executive Office lead agency for developing IPAWS. In June 2006, the President signed the Public Alert and Warning System Executive Order 13407 to drive the creation of a more “effective, reliable, integrated, flexible, and comprehensive system that enables the American people to receive alert and warning information through as many means as possible.” In response, FEMA established the IPAWS Program Management Office (PMO) in April 2007.

6 IPAWS Projects The current IPAWS projects are categorized into the areas of systems engineering, integration and implementation. –EAS Modernization and Expansion Project –Digital Emergency Alert System (DEAS) –Standards and Protocols Project (CAP) –Commercial Mobile Alert System (CMAS) –Geo-Targeted Alerting System (GTAS) –NOAA Weather Radio Improvement Program (WRIP) –Inventory and Evaluation (I&E) –Radio Broadcast Data System (RBDS) Updates and more available at http://www.fema.gov/emergency/ipaws/http://www.fema.gov/emergency/ipaws/
7 Message Disseminators Emergency Managers IPAWS compliant CAP Alert Origination Tools IPAWS Vision Architecture Standards Based Alert Message data exchange format, alert message aggregation, shared, trusted access & distribution networks, alerts delivered to more public interface devices State Emergency Alert System Commercial Mobile Alert System Federal Local State / Local Unique Alerting Systems (e.g. ETN, Siren, Signage systems) Internet Services IPAWS NOAA Public IP access networks IP distribution networks Digital EAS PBS AM FM Satellite Radio; Digital Analog Cable Satellite TV Cellular Phones Web Browsers, widgets, web sites message aggregation, authentication, adaption Cellular Carriers Networks
8 What is the Commercial Mobile Alert System (CMAS)? Commercial Mobile Alert System (CMAS) is one of many IPAWS systems intended to provide services to emergency operations centers so they can warn the relevant public of imminent threats to life and property through geographically targeted messages using Commercial Mobile Service Providers (CMSP); FEMA and DHS S&T are working with the Alliance for Telecommunications Industry Solutions (ATIS), and the Telecommunications Industry Association (TIA) to finalize interface specifications between FEMA CMAS gateway and CMSP gateways; CMAS will facilitate dissemination of 3 types of alerts: –Presidential Alerts –Imminent Threat Alerts –America's Missing: Broadcast Emergency Response (AMBER) Alerts
9 How CMAS Works
10 CMAS Capabilities Centralized Reference Architecture Four Service Profiles: –Text –Streaming Audio (future capability) –Streaming Video (future capability) –Downloaded Multimedia (future capability) Geographic Targeting of Alerts to county level Public opt-out rather than opt-in service 90-character text limit Authentication to ensure trusted source Optional Regular Monthly Testing
