Abstract:

This report presents the results of an evaluation of the capability of the current national warning system to alert and warn Federal, state, and local officials and also the general public in the event of an impending or actual attack on the nation. The study also considered warnings required due to natural disasters or man caused events. Alternative alerting and warning systems, old and new, were evaluated. A detailed report on facilities supporting the State of Colorado, the Colorado Springs Risk Area and the Fremont County Host Area are included. The report provides conclusions on system weaknesses and recommended actions for developing an improved system. Also included as appendices are State and local warning plans and a warning plan guide addressing crisis relocation planning.
