“Get ready for CAP!” webinar set for June 6

FEMA, NAB and the National Alliance of State Broadcasters Association (NASBA of which TAB is a member) have scheduled a FREE webinar on the Integrated Public Alert and Warning System (IPAWS)/Common Alerting Protocol (CAP) in advance of the FCC’s CAP deadline of June 30.

This online session is scheduled for Wednesday, June 6 at 3-4 p.m. CST and will discuss what EAS participants, such as broadcast stations, need to know to ensure they are prepared to receive alert messages in CAP.

This free event will be hosted by Manny Centeno of FEMA and Suzanne Goucher of the Maine Association of Broadcasters.

It will include presentations on the following topics:

  • Antwane Johnson, FEMA IPAWS Director, will provide an overall update on IPAWS developments
  • IPAWS staff will discuss general EAS-CAP best-practices, EAS device configuration, and parallel operation of the EAS using traditional monitoring and CAP
  • FCC staff will address recent changes to Part 11 Rules governing EAS and what State and local Emergency Communications Committees should be aware of as they update their State EAS Plans
  • Whit Adamson, President of the Tennessee Association of Broadcasters will share the steps his group has taken to develop local officials’ interest in using the EAS
  • IPAWS staff will provide an update on the Primary Entry Point (PEP) Expansion Program
