Other Information

Other information provided by the presenter.

• Are there any icons for:
o all kinds of BOM warnings - e.g. road weather, marine wind, hazardous surf, tsunami
o fire bans, planned burn vs unplanned burn
o Longer term: icons for each of the Tier-1 event types defined in CAP-AU
• Why are there separate icons for storms and cyclones (Tier-2 CAP-AU event type)?
• It would be great if Calls to Action and Warning Levels would be compatible to both CAP-AU & EMSINA systems
