WASHINGTON � Three specialized alerting systems are the focus of a webinar next week to be hosted by the Integrated Public Alert and Warning System.
On March 15 the IPAWS Unique Alerting System Webinar will offer demonstrations from vendors SOCIFI, Safety Labs and Alert FM.
Some context: On the list of alert dissemination channels that can receive CAP messages from the IPAWS, these systems fall under a category called "State/Local Unique Alerting Systems," a grouping that also includes RDS, signage, sirens and other specialized platforms. (Other more-familiar categories include EAS, WEA, NOAA and internet services.)
The webinar will be broken up into three 20-minute segments with each company demonstrating its product�s integration with IPAWS and its ability to pull an alert from the IPAWS Alert Feed. Mark Lucero, IPAWS chief engineer, will host.
An audio version of the webinar will be available by phone by calling 1-650-479-3207 and using the access code 664 660 868. The webinar will also be recorded for future viewing.
The IPAWS Unique Alerting System Webinar is scheduled for March 15 at 12 p.m. (ET).
