This how-to guide was designed to help operational leaders minimize the impacts and safety risks caused by severe weather.
Utilities are some of the most weather-sensitive organizations, regularly impacted by severe weather that wreaks havoc on power grids and threatens the safety of line crews.
Leading utilities use StormGeo to keep the lights on, maintain cellular communications, and provide critical services like water, wastewater, and natural gas delivery in the face of even the most severe weather events. We help utilities shape behaviors and processes that drive optimal response actions to weather risks by translating weather data into business impacts and appropriate risk response actions.
Because of StormGeo, we know the timelines and potential intensity of the storm. We were able to stage assets and deploy within a couple hours after Hurricane Michael hit the Florida panhandle. We used to be all reactionary and could take a day or two to begin recovery. StormGeo has been a big game changer for us.Jay Blessing, Sr. Disaster Recovery Manager
Being able to pick up the phone and talk to a meteorologist 24/7, and put that person on a conference call with our executives and storm response teams, means everything. We really count on it as a company.Wayne Scott, Regional Supervisor
