The Federal Emergency Management Agency’s Integrated Public Alert and Warning System (IPAWS) office and representatives of Navajo Nation Emergency Management will hold an one-hour webinar at 1 pm. ET Wednesday, Nov. 18, 2020, to give an overview of IPAWS, as well as discuss how tribal nations can become one of the more than 1,500 authorities nationwide able to send alerts. IPAWS enables public safety officials to deliver a single alert simultaneously through multiple communication devices, reaching as many people as possible during a weather-related or other emergency to save lives and protect property. Lavina Willie-Nez, Deputy Director of the Navajo Nation’s Department of Emergency Management, “pushed the button” to send that initial alert. She and Navajo Nation Emergency Management Director Harland Cleveland will join the webinar to discuss their experience using IPAWS and to take questions.
