The Integrated Public Alert and Warning System (IPAWS) gives public safety officials access to the Emergency Alert System, Wireless Emergency Alerts, NOAA Weather Radio All Hazards, and a number of additional public alerting platforms.

The National Center for Missing and Exploited Children began issuing AMBER Alerts via the Wireless Emergency Alert system in December 2012. Since then, they have witnessed tremendous success in the safe recovery of missing children.

Even as the alerts have become very familiar to the public, there is still a lot of mystery behind who sends the alerts, how the system works, and how alerts are shared with wireless devices.

This presentation will address some of these questions and provide a fundamental understanding of IPAWS and how it is used to keep the public safe.
