Subject: CAP is being used in AU fires [SEC=UNCLASSIFIED]


Hi Elysa,


Yes, CAP-AU is being used significantly during the fires in our state of New South Wales (NSW). 


Out national telephone alerting system (called Emergency Alert) uses CAP-AU to prepare the content of alerting messages that go to mobile phones as text messages and to landlines as recorded voice messages – see http://www.emergencyalert.gov.au/frequently-asked-questions/how-will-it-work-on-mobile-phones.html .  This system has been used numerous times in the last 2 weeks to alert communities of impending dangers and to encourage them to move to safe locations.


The NSW Rural Fire Service (NSW RFS) has also been promulgating all their fire alert messages in multiple formats including CAP-AU format – see http://www.rfs.nsw.gov.au/feeds/majorIncidentsCAP.xml

Hi Greg,


On the TC all today, Rich Vandame asked if there had been any news about CAP use in AU with the recent fires.  It would be great to know that CAP is helping!
