EIC Community Members, 


November's Emergency Interoperability Consortium www.eic.org meeting will feature a presentation from Michelle Mainelli, Director of the Office of Dissemination at NOAA National Weather Service.   Mike Gerber, WEA Representative from NOAA NWS will also attend.    


Michelle’s presentation title and overview is: 

NWS Delivery Services - Where Are We Now? Where Are We Going?

The NWS forecast mission depends on the timely dissemination of critical data internally to forecasters and externally to the American Public and Weather Enterprise.  The Director of the NWS Office of Dissemination will provide an overview of the various methods the National Weather Service currently delivers watches, warnings, and products to their customers and partners.  Included in these delivery services are NOAA Weather Radio, Emergency Alert System, Wireless Emergency Alerts, NOAAPort, Common Alerting Protocol, as well as Web and GIS services.  Each of these delivery services, provide critical information in a format and medium to meet customer needs.   However, maintaining and supporting a multitude of dissemination methods is challenging.   NWS will discuss potential ways to evolve their delivery services to enable most effective means of warning dissemination.   Topics covered will also include how the NWS infrastructure is currently operationally maintained and supported.  


Following Michelle’s presentation the EIC features a Stakeholders Roundtable comprised of Emergency Managers and Weather Industry Representatives.   Participants will be announced soon.  


Elysa Jones, Chairman of the OASIS Emergency Management Technical Committee (EMTC) will present on her committee’s monthly report.


Donald Ponikvar, Chairman of the Emergency Interoperability Consortium, will serve as session moderator.
