Integrated Public Alert and Warning System

During an emergency, public safety officials must provide the community with life-saving information quickly. IPAWS allows emergency officials to alert residents in the area of impact and reduces the risk of negative cascading events.

How IPAWS Works

The Integrated Public Alert and Warning System (IPAWS) is the nation’s official alert and warning infrastructure to alert the public of serious emergencies. CodeRED® supports all modes of communication with IPAWS, including EAS, WEA, NWEM, Public Feed, COG to COG and the JITC Test Environment.

Our county always uses the IPAWS integration to CodeRED which allows us to put out alerts on Emergency Alert System (EAS). This was used to notify people in our county when the 911 system was taken offline by a severed fiber optic cable. We were able to get a message out almost immediately to TV, radio, and cellphones in the area explaining how to reach emergency services.
