Revolution is an emergency mass notification software solution that unites disparate technologies into a centralized platform and gives people the ability to communicate quickly by delivering notifications to the right people at the right time. Robust mass notification tools, like Revolution, support communities and businesses by helping people make safe and informed decisions about inclement weather. This software provides the tools businesses need to reach their people both within the facility and remote.
In this blog, we will explain how Revolution integrates with the National Weather Service (NWS) to help your organization and its people stay prepared for winter weather.
Integrating Revolution with the National Weather ServiceRevolution can receive weather notifications by integrating with NWS CAP (Common Alerting Protocol) feeds. This helps customers monitor weather activity in their geographic area to receive automatic notifications in the event of a winter weather emergency. Authorized users can use the predefined filters built in Revolution to determine the type of weather events they want to monitor, as well as the risk severity (i.e. watch, warning, statements).
This integration helps decision makers determine the next course of action, such as to seek shelter immediately or make a business decision to close early. Automated alerts can save time and resources because it eliminates the need for a person to manually monitor local weather and notify personnel. This is critical during emergencies because every second counts.
