Early warning system


This is the set of capabilities required to develop and broadcast timely and relevant warning information so that individuals, communities, and organizations that are threatened by a hazard can prepare and respond effectively and promptly to minimize the risk of harm or loss. This term incorporates the wide range of criteria required for effective warning responses. Knowledge of the dangers, monitoring, analysis, and forecasting of hazards, communication or dissemination of alerts and warnings, and local capacity to respond to the warnings received are all necessary components of a people-centered early warning system. The phrase “end-to-end warning system” is also used to underline the need for warning systems spanning all stages of hazard identification to community response.
