2022 IPAWS Users Conference

The 2022 IPAWS Users Conference introduced public safety officials not yet using IPAWS to this powerful tool for saving lives and protecting property.

The virtual conference presented the basics of IPAWS and the technical support available. Prospective and current users discovered how to leverage grants and funding for training, exercising, planning, and alerting tools; witnessed a live test of WEA, gained best practices from current Alerting Authorities as well as insights on effective messaging from a social scientist, and learned the four easy steps to get on-board as a new IPAWS Alerting Authority.
