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?

A 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.
