Paul Johnson, Douglas County Emergency Management. Douglas County (Omaha) has just released an official Emergency Alert (EA) Plan which includes a description of EAS and WEA activation. Paul will tell us how the LECC was formed and how he expects EAS and CAP to be used in Nebraska’s most populated county.
Stations and cable have been connected to IPAWS/CAP for two years now. A state-wide RMT was sent by CAP on September 17, 2013. When will Nebraska be implementing CAP messages from local, state or NWS sources? What kind of local or state CAP testing can broadcasters expect?
Added bonus: Bob Eastwood of FEMA Region VII has been invited to briefly update us on the national perspective.
