Sage Alerting Systems and Digital Alert Systems Unit Update

June 17, 2018

Emergency alerts and tests issued in the CAP format have, for security reasons, specific signed certificates. These certificates are routinely updated. FEMA, the agency that issues IPAWS alerts and tests, has scheduled an update to its security certificate on June 24 at 11:24 a.m. ET.

Both Sage Alerting Systems and Monroe/Digital Alert Systems have released updates that users must upload to their units to make the devices compliant. Stations that do not update their EAS equipment will not be able to receive required tests and/or alerts from the IPAWS server after June 24.
