2 2 2 NWS CAP Common Alerting Protocol Lower cost of entry to use mission critical NWS text products Integration with GIS technologies Enhanced message update and cancellation features Multi-lingual and multi-audience messaging How NWS Uses CAP: ( Hurricane/Tropical Cyclones Severe Weather Tsunami Warnings Winter Weather Wind & Heat Events Non-Weather (HazCollect)

3 3 3 Brief History Built and deployed CAP 1.0 feeds in 2004 Built by parsing WMO/text messages With parallel HTML and RSS feeds State and county (2006) feeds Single CAP message contains all alerts Well accepted, widely used, but calls for more fine grained parsing Started CAP 1.1 effort in 2007 Created a cross Weather Enterprise working group Held regular meetings to review prototypes Each CAP message is a unique URI State/County ATOM indexes, HTML replaced by style sheets Plan to replace CAP 1.0 in December and go operational Will serve as a template for future AWIPS produced messages

4 4 4 Approach Past and on-going tasks Enhance the current experimental web-based CAP beta feeds Started in Spring 2009 populating Instruction element Populate additional CAP elements Better quality control Future tasks (2010-2012) CAP “Push” streams XMPP Centrally generate CAP messages in WMO "envelope" and disseminate via traditional NWS “push” dissemination systems Generate native CAP using Next Generation Warning Tool with mixed case, expanded character set, and fully populated CAP elements Generate WMO-formatted product and CAP message Continue to disseminate both versions Engage Partners

6 6 6 HazCollect All-Hazards Emergency Message Collection System Mission – NOAA/NWS is assigned responsibility by the National Response Framework to “provide public dissemination of critical pre- and post-event information” on NOAA Weather Radio All Hazards (NWR) and other dissemination systems. Provides tools to emergency responders and government officials for efficient distribution of alert and warning information to affected population in the event of an emergency. Message Examples: Hazardous Materials Warning, Fire Warning, Evacuation Warning, Shelter-in-Place Warning, Amber Alert, Nuclear Power Plant Warning, Civil Emergency Message Enables wider distribution of Non-Weather Emergency Messages to: NWS dissemination systems including NOAA Weather Radio and NOAA Weather Wire Service, Emergency Managers Weather Information Network (EMWIN) Emergency Alert System (EAS) Weather enterprise, news media, and others that monitor and distribute NWS data streams

7 7 7 HazCollect Description HazCollect is a nationwide capability developed by NWS in coordination with Department of Homeland Security’s (DHS) Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA). Warning authorities create messages on a FEMA- managed application or a third-party CAP-compliant NWEM authoring tool FEMA Disaster Management interoperability platform authenticates users and provides message interoperability amongst parties Distribution of Non-Weather Emergency Messages (NWEMs) through NWS dissemination systems
