NWS is accepting comments through April 1, 2015, on an

experimental service to disseminate credible, relevant and timely

public safety information from other government agencies before,

during and after high impact weather, water and climate events

through NWS Special Weather Statement or Public Information

Statements products.

 

Joining with other government agencies to communicate weather-

related public safety information bolsters the collective effort

to ensure the public is prepared for high impact weather, water

and climate events. Through its existing expansive delivery

infrastructure, NWS can significantly elevate awareness of

serious threats such as, but not limited to, carbon monoxide

poisoning from generator use during power outages, harmful mold

exposure during or after flooding, and heat stroke during heat

waves.
