During an emergency, alert and warning officials need to provide the public with life-saving information quickly. The Integrated Public Alert and Warning System (IPAWS) saves time when time matters most, communicating messages about protecting life and property.
Federal, state, local, tribal and territorial alerting authorities can use IPAWS. By integrating local systems that use Common Alerting Protocol (CAP) standards with IPAWS, officials can alert and warn the public about serious emergencies using the Emergency Alert System, Wireless Emergency Alerts, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration Weather Radio, and other public alerting systems from a single interface.Learn more and sign up for IPAWS
