This week emergency managers from hospital, city, county, and state jurisdictions are evaluating how they might use probabilistic hazard information for decision making during severe convective weather.
We had an unprecedented response to our call for EM applicants for the 2018 HWT PHI EM project. Over 50 EMs applied for 8 spots! So many strong candidates this year! We are actively pursuing funding for next year so we hope those we had to turn away this year will apply next year.
Thank you to our friends in the National Weather Service for helping to spread the word about our project!
This is the information page for emergency manager (EM) participation in NOAA’s Hazardous Weather Testbed (HWT). EMs in the HWT help evaluate probabilistic hazard information (PHI) for severe weather, the core of the future National Weather Service severe weather warning paradigm. PHI is part of NSSL’s overall FACETS initiative. Learn more about FACETS here:
