The Science and Technology Directorate within the U.S. Department of Homeland Security is hosting a Commercial Mobile Alert Service (CMAS) Forum on February 21, in Las Vegas. This CMAS Forum provides stakeholders nationwide with a unique opportunity to discuss CMAS research, development, and testing in advance of CMAS deployment in April.

The CMAS Forum is designed to address current and future-state initiatives to advance CMAS
capabilities nationwide. Information gathered will guide efforts for future CMAS planning, including standards development and emerging technologies. The CMAS Forum will take place at the Las Vegas Convention Center, Room S226, in conjunction with the International Wireless Communications Expo,
from 10:00 AM – 4:00 PM PST.

The discussions and partnerships developed at the CMAS Forum will outline specific actions needed for
preparing communities for CMAS and will advance alerts and warnings capabilities nationwide, enhance
vital partnerships, and lay the groundwork for future success.
