IPAWS stands for "Integrated Public Alert & Warning System."

To apply for access to IPAWS-OPEN follow the instructions found on the FEMA website for Alert Origination Software Providers (AOSPs). Note that developers are encouraged to test their products in the IPAWS-OPEN development environment to ensure they are IPAWS-compatible. If compatible, developers must execute a Memorandum of Agreement (MOA) with FEMA to gain access to the IPAWS-OPEN development environment. See attached.
