Send Critical Communications
The CodeRED for Integrated Public Alert and Warning System (IPAWS) service enables authorized officials to send secure, critical communications from a single portal to communication pathways including the Emergency Alert System (EAS), Wireless Emergency Alert (WEA), National Weather Service (NWEM), COG to COG and Public Feeds. The CodeRED solution features full support and comprehensive user training.
Triple Redundant Architecture
The CodeRED IPAWS tool is housed on redundant servers in geographically separate data centers. To ensure maximum performance, the IPAWS tool also has its own dedicated physical servers. CodeRED IPAWS servers are not Internet-accessible and are isolated in different subnets from the rest of the network, behind firewall appliances that restrict access to CodeRED servers.
In early 2011, ECN worked closely with the Systems Architect on IPAWS and provided the first interface that could successfully post messages to IPAWS the same year. The CodeRED IPAWS interface is regularly demonstrated by FEMA officials at events across the country including the International Association of Emergency Managers.
Current CodeRED clients and those considering a mass notification system are invited to join ECN for a webinar that will cover the features and capabilities of CodeRED for IPAWS. Please note, webinars are intended only for public safety and other government officials who have authority to deliver emergency notifications to the public.
