We consider a “Revamp” to be a larger change to the WWA system that would require significant policy revision, could result in an overhaul and/or revisualization of the current hazard messaging paradigm and would require major infrastructure changes.

We will be featuring a number of demonstration “episodes” to collect public comment on alternatives to the current Watch, Warning and Advisory (WWA) system. Each episode will feature proposed alternative messaging for a specific hazard. The wording and style of the messages you’ll see within each episode are based on feedback we have received so far from the public and our partners. To view a specific episode and complete our survey, please click on any hyperlinked tab below. We will make these hyperlinks “live” as the episodes are developed.
