Improve response times

In the event of flooding, wildfires, and other extreme weather, there’s no room for indecision – by acting fast you save lives and protect livelihoods. Accurate, real-time data means you can move early, confident you’ve made the right choice.

Severe weather events, such as hurricanes, tornadoes, floods, or wildfires, pose significant risks to human life. By improving response times, emergency personnel can evacuate people from vulnerable areas, provide timely medical assistance, and ensure the safety of residents. Every moment counts in these situations, and faster responses increase the likelihood of successful rescues and reduce the loss of life.

Timely responses enable authorities to implement preventive measures that safeguard critical infrastructure, homes, and businesses. This includes reinforcing buildings, deploying flood barriers, or implementing controlled power shutdowns to prevent further damage. By acting swiftly, response teams can mitigate the destruction caused by severe weather, reducing economic losses for individuals and communities.

Faster response times enable better resource allocation. By quickly assessing the severity of a weather event, emergency managers can allocate personnel, equipment, and supplies in a coordinated and efficient manner. This ensures that resources are deployed where they are most needed and maximizes the effectiveness of response efforts.

mass notification

Automate mass alerts

Severe weather events often require evacuation measures to ensure the safety of residents in vulnerable areas. Alerts and notifications help authorities communicate evacuation orders and provide information on available shelters. By promptly notifying the public, individuals can evacuate to safer locations or find appropriate shelter, reducing the potential for harm during the event.

Public safety is a priority when you know lightning, flooding, or other dangerous weather is on the way. We automate alerts to warn everyone affected, letting you shut down operations and move people to safety in plenty of time.

During severe weather events, effective communication is essential for coordinated response efforts. Alerts and notifications facilitate communication between emergency management agencies, first responders, and the public. This ensures that everyone is aware of the situation, understands the recommended actions, and can coordinate their responses accordingly.

local and relevant coverage

Act on hyperlocal data

With more than 17,500 automated weather stations and 1,800 lightning detection sensors across the world, we monitor where you need it most – the perfect partner to keep your people safe when emergency strikes.

To build weather resiliency, actionable data sourced from localized sensors is essential for informed decision-making by emergency managers and business leaders. Leveraging hyperlocal data allows for a more accurate and precise understanding of weather conditions at a micro-scale level.

Severe weather events can vary widely within a single region. Hyperlocal data enables emergency managers to assess the potential impact of severe weather on specific areas, such as neighborhoods or even individual streets. This assessment helps in determining evacuation orders, allocating resources, and implementing appropriate safety measures.
