NOAA - Emergency Managers Weather Information Network - NWS
Entry ID: NOAA_NWS_EMWIN


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
