Alert & Warning Program

Situated under the watchful eye of the California State Warning Center, the Alert and Warning program is in a prime position to observe all Alert and warning activities that occur in the state. The program provides guidance and support for everything needed to run a successful Alert and Warning program.

  • Best practices
  • Lessons Learned
  • Training
  • Exercise Assistance
  • Planning Support
  • Technology

Are just a few key areas where the Alert and Warning program focusses its efforts.

​Our mission is to be the single point of contact for all of the State, Local, Cities, Tribal, Federal, Schools and Special Districts statewide on all Alert and Warning matters.

Our program accomplishes that mission by aligning their efforts with key partners within the Alert and Warning communities. Those partners include:

  • Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA)
  • Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Integrated Alert and Warning Program (IPAWS)
  • State Emergency Communications Committee (SECC) and Local Emergency Communications Committee (LECC)
  • California State Broadcasters
  • National Weather Service
  • Federal Emergency Communications Committee (FCC)

Our ongoing commitment to our stakeholders is to be there for them when they need us most. To continue building relationships and to make sure that we are providing a valuable conduit to information regarding the successful management of your Alert and Warning Programs, remember to include us in meetings, conference calls and information sharing opportunities now and in the future so we can continue to grow our program and ensure your ongoing successes.
