Hawaii needs yoUI!

Contest Brief

Hawaii’s Emergency Management Agency recently caused thousands of families panic when it turned a regular drill into a Ballistic Missile warning. There was havoc around the whole state. The root of it all -- bad UI design.

Attached is an image of the emergency commands page.

Instead of clicking on “DRILL - PACOM (CDW) - STATE ONLY”, the handler clicked on “PACOM (CDW) - STATE ONLY”.

HAWAII NEEDS BETTER UI! MORE DETAILS BELOW.

    Yeah, for every signal toggled or activated there will be a pop up message which will ask for confirmation!!

    Hello everyone. I justed wanted to tell that I have specifically not added any sort of passcode option as there is no enough time for 2-3 step confirmation at such a level. As it is more confusing and creates panic. No offence, its just my personal thought and it does'nt disregard anybody.
    Hope these proves to be a healthy contribution for Hawaii. May all remain safe and sound in Hawaii as well as the whole World.
    Anyway Best of luck to Us All :)

      Hi There! My Intention is to prevent users to mistakenly press the real alarm. That's the reason I restrict the Interface.

      Hi. Yes I can understand, that's why I am not against it. Restricting is a good option but do you think when in actual situation it could be easily handled? Like you know everyone does not have quick and active reflexes.

    Do you need the UI only as an image format (PSD or AI etc.) or also as web designing format (HTML/CSS/JS or php etc.)?

    I really do not seem clear about the indications of alerts that need to be added, I do not know if it is because they lack logic, or they have not been able to convey what is needed.

    It is clear to me that a system is required that prevents an error from happening as it happened recently. However, the error occurred in principle because they are not clear about the difference between one element and another, at the programmer level, leaving aside the visual aspect.

    I have an idea of how to prevent the error from happening again, but I do not know how to organize the elements because I do not understand the system.

    Could you better clarify which are the real alerts, which are the simulations and the level of importance of those alerts? Thank you very much.
