Is Your Organization Prepared for Severe Weather?

Severe weather can strike at any time, including at work or school. Does your organization have a plan with policies and procedures for how to respond?

Here are a few questions for you to consider when creating or updating your severe weather response plan:

  • How do staff members currently learn about weather alerts?
  • Do people in your organization listen to a weather radio or wait to hear outdoor sirens?
  • Who is in charge of initiating an alert to your organization?
  • What happens if the person in charge is out of the office or out sick?
  • Can staff members trigger an emergency notification if they're away from their desk?

notification system capable of keeping you and your staff informed wherever you are can help provide an answer to many of these questions by:

  • Monitoring for alerts from the National Weather Service or any other agency that publishes using CAP protocol
  • Automatically notifying the right people when severe weather is approaching your area
  • Allowing you to gather your management/safety team together to discuss response efforts
  • Sending emergency notifications to your entire organization via several different devices, such as overhead paging systems, IP phones, digital signs, iOS/Android devices, and more. The more methods of communication you have, the better chance you have of reaching people wherever they are. A notification system can make this simple.
