NOAA - Emergency Managers Weather Information Network - NWS
Entry ID: NOAA_NWS_EMWIN
[ Update this Record ]


Summary
Abstract: As an integral part of its mission, the National Weather Service (NWS)
recognizes the need to provide the emergency management community with access
to a set of NWS warnings, watches, forecasts, and other products at no
recurring cost. Toward that end, the Emergency Managers Weather Information
Network (EMWIN) system was developed. In partnership with the Federal Emergency
Management Agency (FEMA) and other public and private organizations, EMWIN is
now evolving into a fully operational and supported NWS service.

EMWIN is a suite of data access methods which make available a live stream of
weather and other critical emergency information. Each method has unique
advantages. EMWIN's present methods in use or under development for
disseminating the basic datastream include: Radio, Internet, and Satellite.
