What is HAZCollect? HAZCollect

HAZCollect is a system whereby emergency personnel through a FEMA website can access the resources of the National Weather Service NOAA Weather Radio system to disseminate emergency messages directly to the public and to local radio and TV stations for broadcast automatically through the Emergency Alert System (EAS).

NWS calls these messages Non-Weather Emergency Messages (NWEM).

Access To HAZCollect

The Warning Coordination Meteorologist (WCM) at each of the 122 NWS offices nationwide will be part of the HAZCollect registration process in each state.

In Wisconsin, WCM’s will currently approve access to HAZCollect to only county-level and major-city agencies.

Each of these county-level / major-city agencies needs to interact with the WCM before hand.
