2) Encapsulation and Distribution of one or more emergency messages or alerts or notifications A Radiological sensor triggered at a prominent Tunnel toll booth. Radiation alarm levels indicates possible dirty bomb. Authorities decide to send multiple messages to a number of jurisdictions. They send an EDXL Distribution Element with two encapsulated CAP messages and a GIS shapefile describing the affected area. The first CAP message notifies the area where the sensor has been triggered. The second CAP message is an alert to emergency response agencies that the state EOC has been activated, and requests the agencies to be on alert. The shapefile provides local geospatial detail for use in recipients' modeling applications.
