CALPAWS Information

Below are documents pertaining to the California Public Alert and Warning System (CalPAWS). The CalPAWS Plan integrates new and existing public alert, warning, and notification systems to provide state and local authorities who are responsible for alert and warning a range of capabilities and dissemination channels, thereby increasing the likelihood that a given message will reach both people in an affected area and those outside who can benefit from greater awareness.
