The first step to achieve your Weather Plan is to establish:
- The distribution list of contacts
- The location of your event
- The dates you need the service
- The three (3) critical thresholds you wish to be informed if reached or exceeded and the action protocols
Critical thresholds (3 examples on the right) are associated to wind, temperature or precipitation. For each of these, you can pre-establish a set of action protocols you have decided your contacts must enact upon notification of a severe weather event. Since you’ll have set-up the protocols in advance, this proactive planning will enhanced your security plan by quickly enacting mitigating actions.
If wind speed is higher than 40 km/h
If rainfall rate is higher than 60 mm/h
If temperature is higher than 39 °C
With the first step done and payment received, your Weather Plan is now activated! Each key contacts will then receive a test email to confirm their email address to our system.
This system not only helps you to plan your operations but also to react in seconds to any potential weather threat that would compromise the success of your event!
