Abstract
The Goal of the Wireless Public Alerting Service (WPAS) Project is to Define, Design, Build, Test and Operate an effective Level I (Cell Broadcast) Service that can subsequently be scaled-out to a National Wireless Public Alerting Service. Canada’s Wireless Service Providers (WSP) will be enabled and interconnected to deliver Level I (Threat-to-Life) Broadcast Immediate (BI) Alerts using Cell Broadcast Technology to Canadian Mobile Phones (the most pervasively used electronic device in history). The Pilot (Technology Demonstration) will take place in the community surrounding the Darlington and Pickering Nuclear facilities on Lake Ontario in Durham Region.
