Our guest speaker will be Don Miller of Washington State Emergency Management. Don will be introducing the latest development in EAS technology, Common Alerting Protocol(CAP). Don will explain and demonstrate the new CAP enabled EAS equipment now being deployed in the state.
CAP standardizes the content of alerts and notifications across all hazards, including law enforcement and public safety as well as natural hazards such as severe weather, fires, earthquakes, and tsunami. Systems using CAP have shown that a single authoritative and secure alert message can quickly launch Internet messages, news feeds, television text captions, highway sign messages, and synthesized voice over automated telephone calls or radio broadcasts.
