Sign-Up for IPAWS


In order to send notifications to IPAWS, you need to sign a Memorandum of Agreement with FEMA. If your potential client does not have this step in place, you can point them in the right direction for completing this requirement.


  1. Obtain an IPAWS-compatible alerting tool
  2. Complete a Memorandum of Agreement
    • Fill out the MOA Application
    • FEMA will create an MOA for you to sign
    • With a signed MOA, FEMA will set up your COG and create your PKI certificate (to install in your alerting tool)
  3. Complete the Public Alerting Application
    • Coordinate with the state and obtain the signature
  4. Complete IPAWS web-based training
    • With a signed Public Alerting Application and training certificate, FEMA will enable your alerting permissions and you will be able to complete the sign-up process.
