OBJECTIVE

STORM FORCE has the ability todisseminate critical and accurate information notifying appropriate personnel of a severe weather emergency in their area prior to its arrival. STORM FORCE allows the subscriber to trim the slow methods of technology such as phone calls, emails and faxes, speeding up the transmission of information to cell phone texting and saving lives.

ABOUT STORM FORCE

The Connecticut Weather Center was formed in 1984 under the name of Techni-Weather. The owner and President is Bill Jacquemin, who is a Meteorologist as well as a teacher of Science and Math. The weather service provides crucial weather information to radio stations, newspapers, Superintendent of Schools, private clients, law firms offering Forensic Meteorological services and expert testimony, and more. The CT Weather Website, started in 1996, continues to provide the public with FREE weather information as well as pollen reports, traffic information, skiing reports, boat and beach reports for Long Island Sound, Inland Lakes, and Candlewood Lake. Power outage information from both United Illuminating and CL&P, and educational links are also offered.

We were FIRST with the IAN (Internet Access Notification) System in the state in the late 90’s. The IAN System allows any Superintendent of Schools can post their latest information on the school schedule and their entry is posted immediately for everyone to see

We were FIRST with the Free E-Notification Service. Parents, students and the general public can sign up to get an e-mail or text message of exactly what is posted for the school, business, or other entity that posts on the IAN System.

We continue to strive to help recycling efforts over the state as well as education of the public in weather issues.

We are now FIRST with STORM FORCE, which will help save money and lives and will possibly be the single most helpful tool in weather disaster preparedness.

1. save time on disseminating important weather warnings to key individuals. Saving time will mean adding time to prepare everyone for the approaching severe weather. More time means less panic.

2. be the “one voice” for issuing this information will mean less conflicting and confusing information. Everyone will be on the same page and will be coordinated and unified in an effort to avoid death and injuries.

3. supply schools with an important benefit. Currently there is no statewide weather emergency plan in place and because of the nature of the school set up where any information would now have to come into the Superintendents office and in turn that information would have to be passed along to principals and on to teachers to keep the students safe takes too much time. STORM FORCE eliminates the trickle down effect of the information. Each superintendent, building supervisor, and principal would be on the service and be instantly notified of threatening weather and warnings and be able to take immediate action. We are also offering for the school districts in the state, an in-service workshop on “Surviving the Storm: What to know to stay safe in Schools”. This workshop will instruct teachers and school personnel on what to do in various storm situations. Storms require immediate action and there is little or no time for a principal or school official to give instructions on a severe weather situation. When notified of an imminent storm situation, Teachers and school personnel need to know what to do with their students to keep them safe. This workshop will do just that.

4. provide information even in a power outage as the messages are transmitted through cell phone, unlike faxes or even e-mail transmissions that rely on electricity.

5. build trust in officials and the public to listen to warnings when they are issued. This will increase the general response of the public as they will learn that there will be no over warning. When they are advised to take shelter, they will do so without hesitation.

STORM FORCE saves Time, Money & Lives!

Here is an Example:

The National Weather Service issues a Severe Thunderstorm Warning for a users county until 8:30 PM. As a client of STORM FORCE, their cell phone would ring indicating they had a text message and the message would read:

SEVERE THUNDERSTORM WARNING UNTIL 8:30 PM

We eliminate all the extra text and information and transmit ONLY the important information. There is no need to mention the county as the subscriber knows the county that they entered. After the warning is issued county-wide then ONLY the towns that the storm will affect will get another message informing then when their town will be affected by the storm(s). If the users town will be hit by the storm, another text message would follow right after. The users cell phone would ring indicating another text message and that message would say:

STORM WITH HAIL- WINDS OVER 50 MPH- 6:28 PM

IMPORTANT:

Users of STORM FORCE that are in the warned county BUT are NOT in the storms path would NOT get a second text message and so they do not have to take any action and continue with business as usual. This will eliminate the over warning as well as saving time and money. Users receiving the second warning can now plan for a storm and expect it at a certain time. ANY changes in time or intensity of the storm would be transmitted immediately.
