“Severe Weather: The 4 extreme threats public safety personnel need to know,” a new severe weather ebook, has been released by critical weather intelligence provider Baron. 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.
Severe Weather 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. The eBook provides a look at some of the most common weather phenomenon that endanger communities.
