This is not the kind of product you want to introduce in the middle of the Hurricane season when people need to focus on immediate safety issues. In the coming severe weather seasons, counties can be well prepared to notify their citizens in advance of storms
Rochester, NY (PRWEB) October 22, 2009
AsherGroup announced today that its Hyper-Reach® emergency notification service is integrated with NOAA weather alerts for approaching storms and storm paths. NOAA, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, tracks storms such as hurricanes and tornados and predicts their paths.
AsherGroup felt that releasing this product now, before the Spring hurricane and tornado seasons begin, would allow municipalities ample time to set up their systems and introduce them to their communities. Hyper-Reach® can be found at http://www.hyper-reach.com
"This is not the kind of product you want to introduce in the middle of the Hurricane season when people need to focus on immediate safety issues. In the coming severe weather seasons, counties can be well prepared to notify their citizens in advance of storms," said Sam Asher, president of AsherGroup.
Asher explains how the system works, "Hyper-Reach system automatically receives information from NOAA of a storm plume along with its predicted path and areas that will likely be affected. Hyper-Reach can be set to automatically call all the phone numbers in that predicted area with a warning. Alternatively, Hyper-Reach can automatically call a designated emergency coordinator first, for authorization to place the warning calls."
