Natural Disaster Warning Systems

Early Warning systems for diverse applications

When disaster strikes, communities and organizations need clear, concise, and actionable notifications in the shortest amount of time possible.  Regardless of whether they are Indoors, outdoors, or offsite, communicate and protect with ATI systems’ all-encompassing mass notification platform. ATI offers specialized geographically optimized solutions, that are modularized to meet the specific needs of each site at hand. Acoustics Technology Inc has dedicated itself to delivering only the most advanced emergency preparedness and public alert systems to date. When designing successful disaster early warning systems, it is vital to make systems that operate with the fastest response time.

 

 State and Local Emergency Notification systems success is dependent on understanding both the geographical needs of each location, as well as understanding the best methods for interfacing with existing systems. Sensor forecasting and local monitoring systems, such as NOAA weather forecasting, play an essential role in forecasting and predicting emergencies, acoustic warning systems ensure messages are broadcasted immediately to the public regardless of whether power lines are cut, or cellular data is lost. Studies show that electronic sirens delivering intelligible voice and tone alerts can minimize causalities, by making clear the gravity of a situation right away. Accompanied with further notification via IPAWS and CAP ATI ensures seamless integration with local alerting mechanisms ensuring everyone receives the message.

“Early warning and timely response play a major role in reducing the vulnerability and mortality caused by disasters and in enhancing the resilience of communities [8]. Deploying appropriate framework and model with the most optimal elements of the warning system can play a significant role in reducing the risk of disasters [4]”

Tsunami warning systems

Tsunami Watch And The Importance Of Early Warning Systems​

Tsunamis are one of nature’s most deadly natural disasters. However, early warning systems make a massive difference in saving lives by giving citizens time to prepare. High powered sirens play an extremely essential role in protecting lives in coastal areas. Local weather stations can detect Tsunami’s before they reach land, the issue is how quickly and effectively can this message be broadcasted to affected areas. 

On December 26th, 2004, a 9.1 magnitude earthquake occurred in the Indian ocean, the devasting waves that landed in Thailand took over an hour to reach land. However, locals had no clue; “Despite the time lapse, locals and tourists were caught completely unaware of the imminent destruction” (History.comUSGS). Had systems been in place many lives could have been protected. The need for Tsunami Warning. Centers to be able to disseminate emergency warnings rapidly and with ease is critical to mitigating the loss of lives – communication is key.

 Often people swimming or on the beach are not tuned into to local radios or paying attention to their phones. ATI Systems offers 360 emergency notification systems that ensure everyone receives a clear and concise message. Outdoor warning sirens, especially intelligible voice systems, play an extremely vital role in ensuring everyone understands the urgency of the situation at hand instantaneously, while digital alerting methods provide further detail. ATI is unique in being able to support multi-factor mass notification systems.

Flood Warning Systems

Early Warning systems for diverse applications

Often when people see rain forecasted or get an alert on their phone about the potential for flash flooding, they ignore the urgency of the situation. According to the New York Times and National weather service “Eighty-eight people die on average each year in the United States as a result of sudden flooding that follows heavy rainstorms” (NYT – NWS).  Major cities across the world are becoming more and more susceptible to the threat of flash flooding, it is vital that emergency managers seek means to disseminate flash flood warning messages in the fastest and most effective manner.

ATI works directly with NOAA weather forecasting networks to understand flood maps and to build systems that can be relied on to work in these dire situations where every moment counts.  Automated Flood Warning systems such as AFWS and IFLOWS play an important role in protecting lives. Furthermore control stations can work directly with NOAA weather forecasting to ensure timely dissemination of messages during emergencies.

Tornado Warning Systems

Outdoor Warning Sirens Play A Vital Role In Saving Lives

Tornadoes are a serious threat to our communities. Thanks to modern meteorology and forecasting, we are given advanced warning of the potential for tornados. What’s surprising is the number of communities and corporations that have either poorly designed outdoor warning systems or none at all. Often communities are protected by mechanical or poorly designed omni directional outdoor sirens that do not offer maximum outdoor warning siren voice intelligibility. When a Tornado is about to strike it is important that civilians outdoors know right away the severity of the situation and to seek shelter immediately.

 

Our sirens communicate both voice and tone in a far more effective and reliable method than our competitors, which is why we have been trusted by corporations around the world for over 40 years. Although ATI’s systems are far more advanced providing the highest quality voice intelligibility in the market, they do not come with the obscene price tag of our competitors. Get covered by a quality system, built to last with a company that is willing to work with your budget to install the best mass notification system to your needs.

Forest Fire Warning Systems

Outdoor Warning Sirens Allow For Emergency Response To Quickly Disseminate Importan Messages

With extreme droughts continued prevalence, wildfires have grown to become a huge issue that is getting worse and worse. This year has shown just how destructive and how easily fires can spread.

Communities can drastically reduce response time with ATI’s systems, being able to communicate during crisis in an immediate and all-encompassing manner gives citizens the time necessary to be prepared and take action.

ATI offers unique systems customized to the customers needs. Often in Wildfire situations we have very little means to predict exactly which route fires will take, making it is hard to rely on static outdoor warning siren placements. We offer both mobile towable siren trailers as well as systems that can be rigged to vehicles allowing for emergency response to take the message directly to effected areas.
