PSCE to highlight Australia's emergency alert system

Public Safety Communication Europe (PSCE) will hold a one-day training workshop on how to best implement article 110 of the European Electronic Communication Code ‘Public Warning System’ (PWS).

The workshop, to be held on 16 May, will be based on the experience and learning from Australia’s equivalent system and will focus on the benefits of an outcomes-driven and requirements-led approach against which to evaluate the best available technologies.

Michael Hallowes will facilitate much of the workshop. He is a former Victoria Emergency Services Commissioner and former National Director of Australia’s Emergency Alert Program.

Hallowes will offer his hands-on experience of leading the design to delivery of Australia’s Public Warning System, known as the ‘Emergency Alert – Location Based Solution’, as a guide to successful implementation of Article 110.

The workshop will evaluate how to create value for money and a greater return on investment by delivering a single architecture that provides a common platform for multiple operational requirements. The workshop will be strongly focused on practitioners but members of the industrial and research communities are also welcome to attend.

The event will be the first of a series of four workshops aimed at guiding relevant European national authorities in delivering an effective PWS by June 2022.

The workshop(s) are complemented by a PSCE white paper openly available for download (PDF): Getting it right first time – Implementing Article 110, European Electronic Communications Code 2018.

Agenda and registration information is available here.
