American Signal, FEMA Partner to Showcase Advanced Technology at Emergency Managers’ Conference and Expo

Milwaukee, Wis., Nov. 14, 2019 — Attendees of the International Association of Emergency Managers Annual Conference will experience firsthand the integration of American Signal Corporation’s advanced CompuLert™ NEXGen technology with the Integrated Public Alert and Warning System, or IPAWS.

When paired with IPAWS, ASC’s CompuLert NEXGen solution provides emergency managers a powerful tool designed to alert the public of a multitude of local, regional and national threats. CompuLert NEXGen is a user-friendly and effective solution to monitor and control emergency warning sirens.

ASC will demonstrate the technology during the conference’s exposition, Nov. 18 – 20, in Savannah, Georgia. In cooperation with ASC, the Federal Emergency Management Agency, or FEMA, will trigger IPAWS alerts from booth 337 that will activate a siren displayed in ASC’s booth 511.

“By partnering with FEMA at the IAEM Annual Conference, we will have the opportunity to show emergency managers from around the world the vast possibilities of linking our NEXGen technology with IPAWS,” said ASC Executive Vice President Richard Roe. “By integrating IPAWS with ASC solutions, emergency managers will be able to provide lifesaving information to the public quickly — potentially saving countless lives from multiple threats.”

ASC announced enhanced IPAWS integration in August after rigorous testing to ensure its technology receives alerts from IPAWS and reliably alerts the public to the threat.

The IAEM Annual Conference and Expo attracts nearly 2,000 emergency management professionals from around the world and is designed to improve attendees’ knowledge, competency, and collaborative skills.
