Alerts and Warnings
This Community will empower the emergency response community with the information needed to update and augment existing alerts and warnings programs using the Commercial Mobile Alert Service (CMAS). Through CMAS, which is sometimes referred to as Wireless Emergency Alerts (WEA), the public can receive local and national emergency alerts on their mobile devices without having to opt-in to a service. The Department of Homeland Security’s Science and Technology (S&T) Directorate, in partnership with FEMA and the FCC, are engaging with alerts and warnings stakeholders and industry representatives to conduct a series of tests and forum discussions to help emergency managers take advantage of this new capability. S&T is also leading a research and development program to improve the geographic targeting of CMAS messages and to better understand and improve upon how the public responds mobile alerts and warnings. In addition to these activities, S&T is investigating how best to integrate CMAS with existing systems and is gaining an understanding of the wireless coverage of CMAS and how that influences adoption of the system. Email CMAS_Forum@sra.com to sign up for our regular CMAS Update, which includes the latest information on S&T's CMAS activities. 356
