"We now have a powerful weather tool for our business."

by Emily Belden        February 12, 2010  |  9:28 am  |  Category: Testimonials

"For a number of years, we would rely on the free internet weather sites for radar, local news channels for “real time” data, and lightning detectors for on-site alerts. Many of the websites, however, don’t update the radar data frequently. None of the sites gave us any predictive capabilities for where storms were headed.

"We started using [Weather Defender] a couple of years ago, and I was impressed with the frequency of radar updates and the ability for the software to predict where storms would move. With Weather Defender,  we now have a powerful weather tool for our business. The GIS capabilities allow us to fully customize the software for our location.

"We use Weather Defender as our “eye on the sky.” Our outdoor-based employees are trained to be “weather alert,” but Weather Defender's Alert Perimeters help us keep a closer watch on potential storms. Combined with the software's storm track capabilities, we can now be proactive, rather than reactive, when it comes to the weather. And the new Alert sounds, in particular the “thunder clap” and “tornado siren,” scares the daylights out of our office staff when a storm gets too close!"

Perryville resident protects friends & family outside the range of Tornado Sirens

"We've had 2 tornadoes near Perryville in the last 3-4 years that have impacted many people we've known.  This includes killing 2 people that my wife and I both worked with for many years....  [in another situation] the grandmother of a friend of mine was living in a town that I could see was in the path of a tornado I was tracking in the Weather Defender (confirmed by Local Storm Reports).  She lived in a trailer and was not in an area where sirens were sounded or could be heard.  I called my friend and told her that a tornado was headed for the area in which her grandmother lived and she called her grandmother.  She was able to get out of the trailer and to a safer location.  Fortunately,  the tornado was not on the ground long enough to get to her place, but my call was 15-20 minutes before it would've gotten there.   Fifteen to twenty minutes may not sound like much, but it can mean the difference between life and death when a tornado is in the area.  They were very grateful for my call.
