Alerting the Whole Community: Removing Barriers to Alerting Accessibility

Main Content
This paper serves to demonstrate how Integrated Public Alert and Warning System (IPAWS) addresses the challenges of reaching the whole community, including the 25% of our population who might need assistance. It offers compelling evidence that, while IPAWS doesn’t solve all of the challenges, it can certainly mitigate them – particularly with greater stakeholder engagement and public awareness.
