EWN personnel analyse national and international datasets to capture severe weather and natural hazard threats 24/7.
Employing specialised data modelling EWN specialists build location based predictive threat and event forecasts. An event may be a positive but critical incident in which forewarning allows advantageous planning.
Automated EWN systems monitor remote sensors and data then compare this to business specific criteria to identify potential threats likely to affect EWN customers.
The GNIS geo-locates all events and maps their impact on our client base.
Expert Alert Operators continually monitor and analyse data displayed by EWN’s main primary alert system.
When specific warning thresholds are met and verified by EWN Alert Operators and precise locations confirmed or applied by Operators, alerts are issued for the registered location through EWN’s Geographic Notification and Information System (GNIS)
The GNIS reports back to operators the status of alerts issued
