  • Essentials of AWNs Document

    As the SAFECOM Education & Outreach Chair, I am please to continue to disseminate information provided to me to share with our State, Local, and Tribal stakeholders. Please take a few minutes to check out the website and see how this information can be used by your agency. Thank you for you time and stay safe.

    We are pleased to announce that the Essentials of Alerts, Warnings, and Notifications document has been published on the SAFECOM Technology Resources webpage under “Alerts and Warnings”. The document provides an overview of existing national alerts, warnings, and notifications (AWN) systems to help public safety officials, Smart City planners, and alert originators to familiarize themselves with the systems. It is a companion piece to Ten Keys to Improving Emergency Alerts, Warnings, and Notifications.

    The development of this document would not have been possible without your input, ideas, expertise, and commitment, and we sincerely thank you. We are grateful for your contributions and are looking forward to continuing working with the you on future AWN guidance. We encourage you to share the publication blog post with your colleagues and others who might be interested in this document.

    Thank you again for your continued support of this document.
