Safety at school is a major concern for everyone, not just for students and parents. Although you can’t control all the variables when it comes to school safety, using real-time data to stay informed keeps you ahead of the game. One area where this proves true is that of lightning and weather safety. If you want accurate weather forecasts, you need to do more than just watch the news.
Real-Time Weather Data
Weather changes from minute to minute. To really be prepared for atmospheric changes, including severe weather where you may need to take cover, you need real-time data. Earth Networks provides customized weather data visualization tools, accessible from a computer or mobile device, to help your school plan activities when the weather looks threatening.
In-Cloud Lightning Detection
Being aware of in-cloud lightning activity enables you to prepare for incoming severe weather, including tornadoes, heavy rain, hail and lightning strikes. In-cloud lightning often occurs earlier and more frequently than visible, cloud-to-ground strikes. Therefore, Earth Networks’ lightning detection system can give you more time to get your students, staff and visitors to a safe place before the weather turns deadly.
Hyperlocal Weather Stations
When you install a weather station on your school campus, you can be confident that the data you receive is current and relevant to your school’s location. These weather stations analyze and report on conditions such as wind, humidity and temperature and can be linked with a lightning detector and outdoor alerting system. The alerting system can be customized based on the nearness of lightning and the hours that weather alarms should sound.
Preparation is the key to enhanced safety on school grounds. Control what you can, monitor what you can’t and always have a plan in place. Contact Earth Networks today to learn more about monitoring weather conditions and making your school safer during regular hours and extracurricular events.
