NWS requests participation in the Hazards Simplification Survey

from IAEM

For the past several years, the National Weather Service (NWS) has been exploring the strengths and weaknesses of the Watch, Warning, and Advisory system used to convey expectations of hazardous weather. The system has been in place for decades, and it serves a critical need for the public and NWS partners for decision-making purposes. The NWS is considering whether the current system is the best to accomplish hazard messaging goals and promote a Weather-Ready Nation. The answer to this question rests, in part, with the needs and the experiences emergency managers and other users have using the present system. Please share your experiences by completing this survey. The survey asks you to consider a particular hazardous weather event where the messaging did (or did not) work well from your viewpoint, or from the viewpoint of your community or audience. You may also provide input on your general experience with specific types of hazardous weather situations rather than focusing on a particular event. The survey can be taken in about 20 minutes if you have information from an event (or your general experience) already in mind. You may also complete the survey in more than one session; your completed responses will be saved for up to one week. Submissions are due by August 15, 2015. Email any questions to hazsimp@noaa.gov. more
