This third in the series of three invaluable European workshops run by PSCE and Zefonar Advisory provides further essential guidance to national Public Warning System (PWS) project teams on preparing for implementation. It deals with the two critical areas of:
1. Operational Readiness – writing the Standard Operating Procedures and Training Manual to ensure national consistency in operation by all the PWS user-authorities and authorising officers, and
2. Community Preparedness and Education – the creation of promotional materials and multi-media communication channels to educate the population to prepare them for pre-launch community-based trials followed by full implementation nationally.
These are two hugely important critical success factors. Our workshop focuses on the actions needed to train and exercise the user-authorities to give them the proficiency and confidence to activate the PWS quickly and effectively. Similarly, educating the population, from children to senior citizens, including international visitors, is essential so that everyone knows the significance of an alert and the importance of following the advice in the warning message.
As with the two first workshop respetively held in Brussels on May 16 and Helsinki on October 8, this third workshop is designed to help national project teams achieve full compliance with Article 110 EECC by June 2022.
Michael Hallowes will facilitate much of the workshop. He is the former Emergency Services Commissioner and National Director of Australia’s “Emergency Alert Program”. He will offer his experience from leading the design to delivery of Australia’s equivalent Public Warning System, as a hands-on guide to successful implementation of Article 110, EECC.
This workshop complements the PSCE White Paper "HOW TO IMPLEMENT ARTICLE 110 OF THE ELECTRONIC COMMUNICATIONS CODE - GETTING IT RIGHT THE FIRST TIME".
