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.
