Let Us Handle the Weather

When you have a toothache, do you go to the dentist or do you try to fix the cavity yourself?  Why not look at handling severe weather situations that may impact your business, non-profit organization or other facility in the same way?  By giving the experts at WeatherGuidance SiteWarn the task of monitoring, alerting and/or warning your key personnel of severe weather conditions, you can focus on making sure the severe weather action plans of your company or organization are properly executed as a result. 

 

 

Fully Customized, Site-specific Warnings

While storm warnings issued by the National Weather Service and passed along via the news media, internet and other sources may serve the public at large quite well, they are typically not specific nor timely enough to meet the demands of a business or other organization with severe weather safety and/or asset protection concerns.

That's where SiteWarn from WeatherGuidance comes in.  SiteWarn is a comprehensive, fully customized weather monitoring, alert and storm warning service.  Whether you're in charge of safety and/or asset protection operations at a school district or a manufacturing plant (or anything in between), SiteWarn can help you stop playing weatherman and focus on doing your job.

Some of the industries that benefit from SiteWarn include:

•School districts and university campuses
•Hospitals, nursing homes, assisted living and daycare centers
•Manufacturing facilities and data centers
•City and state government agencies
•Amusement parks, sporting arenas and other entertainment venues
•Aquatics facilities and water parks
•Any operation with safety and asset protection concerns related to severe weather

 

We Alert You To Your Concerns

Because SiteWarn is fully customized to fit your specific operational needs and concerns, you'll never have to worry about missing an alert of weather conditions that could affect your operational and/or safety concerns.  Some examples of the types of alerts and/or warnings that we provide include:

•Tornadoes, high winds and/or large hail
•Lightning Strikes
•Temperatures of a specific level
Rainfall, snowfall and/or ice accumulation
•Tropical storms and hurricanes
•Wildfire location and spread
•Earthquake notifications
•Any other weather or related hazards that may impact your specific operations

In each of the above cases, the user specifies their minimum criteria to trigger an alert and/or warning.  If you are only concerned about winds of 65 mph or higher - that's what you'll be alerted to.  If you are only concerned about a tornado threat within 2 miles of your specific location(s) - that's what you'll be alerted to, and so on.

"Null Warning" Notifications

If the National Weather Service issues a tornado or other weather warning that includes your location, but in our professional opinion there is no threat to your specific location, we will issue a notification advising you that there is no threat to your facility.

Due to the typical very large size of National Weather Service warning areas relative to the actual threat, this type of scenario occurs frequently.  As an example, see a Severe Thunderstorm Warning recently issued by the National Weather Service (NWS) below.  Note the huge size of the warned area (outlined in red) as compared to the area that actually faced a potential threat (circled in white):

Not only do our customers tell us that our "Null Warning" Notifications help their employees and customers avoid unnecessary panic due to a false alarm, but they also help them avoid losing hundreds of hours of production time, which often equates to thousands of dollars in annual savings. 

 

No Repackaged Warnings

Unlike many of our competitors, we do not simply repackage National Weather Service Warning information and/or adjust it to fit your area. 

Each alert and/or warning from WeatherGuidance is prepared by a highly trained, experienced SiteWarn staff member from development to issuance (as well as with all follow-ups). 

The result is accurate, precise and actionable weather information desigined to fit your specific needs.

 

Multiple Delivery Methods

SiteWarn alerts, warnings, forecasts and other information may be delivered in a variety of ways, including:

•Smartphone app (for both android and iOS)
•Secure website hosted in our house or yours
•Email alerts
•Telephone alerts (voice phonecall by a live human being)
•Text alerts (although push alerts from our smartphone app are often more effective)
•Any combination of the above methods

Regardless as to the delivery method(s),  SiteWarn alerts, warnings and forecast information can be configured to be sent to an unlimited number of users within your organization at no additional cost.

We are proud to serve customers with as little as 1 location and fewer than 10 employees, and as many as 100+ locations and thousands of employees.  Regardess as to the size of your organization, the number of locations, etc., we will be glad to work with you to develop the best plan to fit your specific needs - while staying within your budgetary concerns and limits at the same time.

 

State-Of-The-Art Weather Technology

Every SiteWarn plan includes access to live, interactive weather radar with full pan, zoom and animation capabilities and pinpoint lightning strike data.  Your location(s) may also be overlaid directly on the interactive map for easy identification and critical decision making.

With just a few clicks of your mouse (or taps of your finger on the smartphone application), additional weather data layers such as temperatures, wind speed and direction, rainfall, severe weather watch and warning data, and other custom GIS data (such as additional facility locations, river flood and low water crossing points, etc.) can be overlaid on the image for a truly interactive experience.
