The purpose of a PWS service is to provide timely alerts that can help people protect their lives and property during an emergency. Over the past decade, global warming and unstable political environments have changed the nature and frequency of disasters. This evolution calls for a modernization of PWS to allow authorities to use the most widespread means of communication—mobile phones—to alert people to danger. Mobile technology is especially useful for a PWS as it offers unique capabilities in terms of reach, content, speed and geo-targeting.
This application note explores the requirement for a new, modern PWS. It explains the available solutions and recommends a way forward that will allow federal authorities to better protect people and property when disaster strikes.
