EBS: How to Apply for Access to IPAWS-OPEN (MOA Attached)
How to apply for access to IPAWS-OPEN.
IPAWS stands for "Integrated Public Alert & Warning System."
To apply for access to IPAWS-OPEN follow the instructions found on the FEMA website for Alert Origination Software Providers (AOSPs). Note that developers are encouraged to test their products in the IPAWS-OPEN development environment to ensure they are IPAWS-compatible. If compatible, developers must execute a Memorandum of Agreement (MOA) with FEMA to gain access to the IPAWS-OPEN development environment. See attached.
Please email the completed MOA to IPAWS@fema.dhs.gov and indicate "Developer MOA Application" in the subject line.
NOTE: There is a broken URL in the MOA, http://www.fema.gov/library/viewRecord.do?id=5670, which has been reported to FEMA.
