SEVERE WEATHER

Baron Releases Severe Weather eBook
Online document details best severe weather procedures
Huntsville, AL– Baron, the worldwide provider of critical weather intelligence, announces a severe weather eBook, titled “Severe Weather: The 4 extreme threats public safety personnel need to know.” The document provides a detailed guide to each major type of severe weather threat, including thunderstorms, tornadoes, lightning, and hail storms.
The vast majority (78%) of disasters recorded in the United States each year are weather related. Yet, when asked what types of incidents they expect to respond to over the course of the year, many Emergency Management Personnel (EMP) and public safety officials underestimate the number of weather focused disasters and overestimate acts of terrorism and incidents involving mass transportation.
The new Baron eBook educates EMPs and public safety officials by focusing on the characteristics of the different kinds of severe weather that can be experienced all over the United States. Despite their differences, thunderstorms, tornadoes, lightning, and hailstorms can all cause significant damage. Power outages, structural damage, traffic accidents, and even death are all situations that each kind of severe weather may cause. Baron’s eBook provides a look at some of the most common weather phenomenon that endanger communities.
The eBook also includes information on Baron Threat Net, a web-based meteorological tool that provides critical weather intelligence when and where it is most needed, and can be an important tool in times of severe weather. For Emergency Management Personnel, the ability to analyze and interpret weather data is essential to protecting their communities. Accessible anytime and anywhere, Baron Threat Net delivers the critical weather intelligence needed in an easy-to-read format to help EMPs make fast, informed, and effective mission-critical decisions.
