PSCE second workshop on public warning systems
Public Safety Communications Europe (PSCE) will hold its second public warning system (PWS) workshop on 8 October, 2019, in Helsinki, where the agenda will cover implementation of Article 110 EECC, which requires European member states to implement a PWS by June 2022.
As with the first workshop in May 2019, Australia’s equivalent Emergency Alert public warning system will be used as the exemplar.
The workshop will walk national project team participants through the steps necessary to implement a PWS, covering:
- the steps needed for ministerial approval for project implementation governance
- legal liabilities
- political risk
- operational performance standards
- options for immediate and long-term funding sustainability.
There will be an emphasis on producing value for money and a greater return on investment by delivering a single architecture that provides a common platform for multiple requirements.
Information about the workshop can be found here, while background information can found in the PSCE white paper, ‘How to implement Article 110 of the Electronic Communications Code - Getting it right the first time’.
