Street-Level Tracking is Key for Public Servant

by Emily Belden        February 17, 2010  |  12:28 pm  |  Category: Testimonials

"As a public servant in Morrison County I'm concerned that we provide our residents with the best information possible to enable them to adequately prepare in a timely fashion for what might be coming - whether it is flood, winter storms, severe thunder/lightning storms, tornados or whatever.  Our Public Safety and Public Works personnel need to be able to respond rapidly and strategically to changing conditions as well, and weather related events can play a big part in their ability to do so.

"One of our recent areas of focus is bringing the weather down to street and parcel level.  This gives us the ability to identify specific locations where there might be high concentrations of people in the path of a system, giving law enforcement and other agencies the ability to provide a more advanced notice than might otherwise be given - possibly saving lives.  Being able to add our own layers of data as an overlay to Weather Defender could potentially help us in this regard."

"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!"
