Emergency Alerting: Capabilities Have Improved, but Additional Guidance and Testing Are Needed
Mark Goldstein (au)
An effective system to alert the public during emergencies can help reduce property damage and save lives. In 2004, the Fed. Emergency Mngt. Agency (FEMA) initiated the Integrated Public Alert and Warning System (IPAWS) with the goal of integrating the nationńˇ╗s Emergency Alert System (EAS) and other public-alerting systems into a comprehensive alerting system. In 2009, GAO reported on long-standing weaknesses with EAS and FEMAńˇ╗s limited progress in implementing IPAWS. Subsequently, FEMA and the Fed. Communications Comm. (FCC) conducted the first-ever nationwide EAS test in November 2011. This report examined: (1) how IPAWS capabilities have changed since 2009 and what barriers, if any, affect its implementation; and (2) results of the nationwide EAS test and federal efforts to address identified weaknesses. Tables and figures. This is a print on demand report.
