The flagship WeatherCall system continuously monitors the National Weather Service’s NOAA weatherwire and compares a school’s specific address to the location of the warning area polygon, immediately calling any type of telephone to deliver a specific warning message. The system also simultaneously sends an email containing a Google map of the school’s location, the warning area which activated the call, and an animation of the nearest local NWS Doppler radar.
An even more difficult challenge for school officials to monitor is lightning because it is so random and difficult to estimate its relative distance away. Lightning frequently originates from storms which never meet the NWS “severe” criteria, yet can pose an extremely dangerous situation for areas immediately around a school or recreation area. School officials will no longer have to wonder if lightning is too close or not.
Each school that signs up for WeatherCall for Schools receives the following types of National Weather Service (NWS) issued warningsissued within a 1 mile zone around the school’s location and the importantall clear message when that threat has passed:
This is a long form text area designed for your content that you can fill up with as many words as your heart desires. You can write articles, long mission statements, company policies, executive profiles, company awards/distinctions, office locations, shareholder reports, whitepapers, media mentions and other pieces of content that don’t fit into a shorter, more succinct space.
Articles – Good topics for articles include anything related to your company – recent changes to operations, the latest company softball game – or the industry you’re in. General business trends (think national and even international) are great article fodder, too.
Mission statements – You can tell a lot about a company by its mission statement. Don’t have one? Now might be a good time to create one and post it here. A good mission statement tells you what drives a company to do what it does.
Company policies – Are there company policies that are particularly important to your business? Perhaps your unlimited paternity/maternity leave policy has endeared you to employees across the company. This is a good place to talk about that.
Executive profiles – A company is only as strong as its executive leadership. This is a good place to show off who’s occupying the corner offices. Write a nice bio about each executive that includes what they do, how long they’ve been at it, and what got them to where they are.
