SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: This proposed information collection previously published in the Federal Register on June 21, 2018, at 83 FR 28857 with a 60-day public comment period. FEMA received four comments that were unrelated to this collection.

The Integrated Public Alert and Warning System (IPAWS) is the Department of Homeland Security’s (DHS) response to the Executive Order. The Stafford Act (U.S.C. Title 42, Chapter 68, Subchapter II) requires that FEMA make IPAWS available to Federal, State, and local agencies for the purpose of providing warning to governmental authorities and the civilian population in areas endangered by disasters. The information collected is used by FEMA to create a Memorandum of Agreement (MOA) that regulates the management, operations, and security of the information technology system connection between a Federal, State, territorial, tribal or local alerting authority and IPAWS– OPEN (Open Platform for Emergency Notifications).
