Weather Stations for Emergency Management

First response instrumentation


First responders to natural disasters and civil emergencies must move fast, set up equipment quickly, and maintain a safe distance set-back from hazardous areas for command-and-control centers. To make accurate decisions, they need to know in exact detail what weather conditions are and have instantaneous warning of any change.

WeatherHawk meets the requirements of first responders with a cost-effective, easy-to-use weather monitoring and data logging system. Available at preferred Federal Government pricing under EPA BPA #EP09W000552.

  • WeatherHawk is lightweight and portable, so it’s easy to move into remote or treacherous areas.
  • WeatherHawk provides data quickly. It can be set up in less than 15 minutes by one responder wearing full protective equipment.
  • WeatherHawk doesn’t need to be placed near a power source because the system is battery powered and can operate for up to 4 days without an external power source. An optional solar panel enables unlimited operation in remote areas or where electrical power is not available.
