Continuity Programs, (202) 646-2523, [email protected]. You may

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Public Law 114-143, the Integrated Public 
Alert and Warning System Modernization Act of 2015, and Presidential 
Executive Order 13407, Public Alert and Warning System, establishes the 
policy for an effective, reliable, integrated, flexible, and 
comprehensive system to alert and warn the American people in 
situations of war, terrorist attack, natural disaster, or other hazards 
to public safety and wellbeing. The Integrated Public Alert and Warning 
System (IPAWS) is the Department of Homeland Security's response to the 
Executive Order. The Stafford Act (42 U.S.C. 5121, et seq., Pub. L. 93-
288, as amended) 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 that regulates the management, 
operations, and security of the information technology system 
connection between a Federal, State, Tribal, territorial, or local 
alerting authority and IPAWS-OPEN (Open Platform for Emergency 
Notifications).
    The IPAWS Public Alerting Authorization application captures 
information detailing which types of events the local jurisdiction 
wants to be configured to use IPAWS for and which primary dissemination 
channels should be available. For example, if a community wants to send 
a Civil Emergency message (CEM) to broadcast across radio, television, 
and cable, they will request ``CEM'' for ``EAS''--the Emergency Alert 
System. These requested permissions are reviewed by either the State or 
by Tribal authorities for compliance with established overall alerting 
policies and plans. IPAWS uses the approved information to configure 
permissions in IPAWS-OPEN.
