Cody writes to tell us how Weather Defender is being used at SLEMCO, an energy utility in Louisiana that serves over 90,000 residents:
"Weather Defender has been of a great assistance to our dispatch staff by making our company aware of pending weather threats to our electrical grid.

"I’m on my 4th weather-related business in the Twin Cities, and over the years I’ve become dependent on smart developers and a handful of creative, innovative hardware and software vendors that keep us on the leading edge of meteorology. One of our clients is a wind farm in North Dakota, where the weather can change in the blink of an eye and the threat of severe weather is ever-present. My latest company, WeatherNation, has come to rely on Weather Defender to keep our clients up-to-the-second, and ahead of the storm. Any tool that increases the safety factor for weather-sensitive companies is going to be well-received in the marketplace. There’s nothing like Weather Defender; we’ve been very pleased with the service. It has some very powerful functionality and can be adapted for any business that puts employee safety first.”

"We host quality summer programming that brings in thousands of children each summer. But even the best programming won't bring kids to our camp if their parents are concerned about safety. That's why we use Weather Defender to be alerted to severe weather near our camps, and we promote this fact to parents so they know that while their children are with us, they'll be safe."
