Using Common Alerting Protocol (CAP) for emergency warning across multiple alerting authorities

This session shows the international standard Common Alerting Protocol (CAP) helping nations achieve coherent warning systems, without major disruption and at minimal expense. In any complex emergency, multiple trusted authorities are always involved. Each needs to communicate particular messages about the emergency. By using CAP to communicate the key facts coherently, the different authorities avoid confusing the public.

Eliot Christian is a leader of the worldwide movement to leverage the all-hazards, all-media Common Alerting Protocol (CAP) standard. He is a pro bono consultant working with many international companies and organizations, including AccuWeather, Google, IFRC, ITU, WMO and WBU, among others. Together with Ian Ibbotson, he runs the non-profit Alert-Hub.Org CIC, providing free, open source software: CAP Editor for publishing alerts and the cloud-based Filtered Alert Hub for disseminating alerts at any scale.
