Working in partnership with the District of Tofino we have developed a comprehensive tsunami monitoring and community alerting solution that expedites the process of alerting citizens during a tsunami. The solution is deployed and actively running in the District of Tofino and is available to other “at risk” communities along the west coast.
Early Advisory Leads ToQuicker Response
Do you have a 24/7 reception point to be able to monitor and receive National Tsunami Warning Center (NWTC) alerts from NOAA? If you don’t, you may be left with an inconsistent response that lacks redundancy.
Ensure a rapid, effective and consistent transition from situational awareness to emergency response and community notification with Voyent Alert!
In the event that a Tsunami Warning, Advisory, or Watch is issued impacting the coast, our system automatically constructs a critical alert and sends it out to your designated group.
These automatic alerts, provide the early advisory needed for emergency management personnel to rapidly respond to the situation.
Seconds matter during a critical event. As soon as you receive the autogenerated advisory, simultaneously send an alert to your community members.
Depending on the location of the individual, or an individual’s followed location(s) (i.e., home, office etc.) different alerts may be received.
All evacuation related templates include a map based visual based on a 10M or 20M Elevation Safe Zone indicating:
- Recipient’s current or followed location(s) (home, school, cell phone (if applicable))
- Location of the nearest high ground colour coded in Green
- Location of emergency shelter
The ability to provide contextual alerting, can help keep critical roadways free of traffic and provides more relevant information tailored to the individual.
