The Integrated Public Alert & Warning System (IPAWS)
IPAWS is FEMA's national system for local alerting. IPAWS provides authenticated emergency information to the public through mobile phones using Wireless Emergency Alerts, through radio and television via the Emergency Alert System, and on the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration's Weather Radio.
Genasys is fully certified by FEMA as an IPAWS originator. With the FEMA certificate loaded into the system, publish WEA and EAS messages to alert the community. Genasys is fully WEA 3.0 compliant: broadcast short and long messages, English and Spanish in the same alert. Define a polygon and broadcast both by FIPS code or only to a specific geofence defined by the operator.
Genasys also supports nationwide FEMA feed monitoring. Set up an unlimited number of rules to monitor live IPAWS feed and automatically initiate custom-defined alerts to staff, workforce or community whenever a pattern is matched. From automatically published National Weather Service alerts to a neighboring county or authority publishing an urgent message – aggregate and escalate for quick action and response.
