Chameleon Support for NAAD System

Chameleon has added support for the National Alert Aggregation & Dissemination (NAAD) System. This is Canada’s national public alert system which delivers critical and potentially life-saving alerts to Canadians through television, radio and wireless devices.

Bannister Lake provides a parser to the TCP push feed which customers can run locally. Alerts are also made available on the Bannister Lake Community cloud service providing a RESTful api to access alerts organized into provinces and regions.

Chameleon consumes all required and optional data from the feed and includes fields for immediate wireless and broadcast messages.

Bannister Lake has also built a web widget which broadcasters can use on their websites and news broadcasts. The source code is made free of charge to all Chameleon customers.
