The first part of the webinar will review IPAWS Lab abilities, methods to access the lab, and benefits to Alerting Authorities. The second portion of the webinar will include discussion on ways to integrate IPAWS use into various functional and operational exercises, such as, table-top drills, evaluated assessments, and large-scale events.


Jody Smith, IPAWS Engineering, will lead this 45 minute webinar with contract support from Tom Barry, CEM, MEP.

Additionally, our guest alert and warning panelists will discuss their experiences using IPAWS during tests and exercises.
