    BACKGROUND

    • The Common Alerting Protocol (CAP) allows emergency messages to be simultaneously disseminated over a wide variety of existing and emerging public alerting systems.
    • CAP is an international technical data specification developed by the Organization for the Advancement of Structured Information Standards (OASIS).
    • In addition to the basic CAP standard, a supplemental IPAWS Profile technical specification was developed to ensure compatibility with existing warning systems used in the United States.
    • FEMA has formally adopted CAP and the IPAWS Profile to implement the Integrated Public Alert and Warning System.
