Pulsiam Representative Speaks About Best Practices on Panel for Effective Early Warning Systems

Pulsiam representative Holly Blanks attended a workshop October 6-7 in Iquitos, Peru to speak on best practices in interoperability

Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC), a multilateral body supporting economic growth in the Asia-Pacific, held a two-day workshop on public alerts and warnings in Iquitos, Peru earlier this week. Pulsiam representative Holly Blanks, Director of International Business Development, was invited to speak on a panel discussing best practices in interoperability, technology, and governance behind effective early warning systems. 

"It was an honor to be asked to speak," commented Blanks earlier this morning. "Early warning systems are an essential part of disaster management and response, and integrating that technology directly into resource management applications, like our SafetyNet Computer-Aided Dispatch software, is paramount to ensuring a quick and accurate response to any natural disaster."

The panel focused on explaining the importance of interoperability and technology, as well as governance solutions to achieve interoperability. The panel was moderated by Wade Witmer, Deputy Director of the  Integrated Public Alert & Warning Systems (IPAWS) division of the U.S. Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA).
