IPAWS: Wireless Emergency Alerts

The Center for Advanced Communications Policy (CACP) Collaborative team efforts on this project were to promote access to emergency communications for people with disabilities by providing advisory support, independent analysis and other professional services to the Department of Homeland Security Directorate in which Integrated Public Alert and Warning System (IPAWS) resides. During our efforts, we were able to specifically research, analyze and report extensively on Wireless Emergency Alerts, as well as, Social Media and Mobile Apps.
