Is Your Event Storm-Ready?
David VandenHeuvel, senior vice president of enterprise solutions, Weather Decision Technologies Inc.
You can't change the weather—but you can certainly plan for it. Lightning, hail, and hurricanes are all possible guests at your next event, and while they may not be welcome, planners must always be prepared to “greet” them. Putting safety first is imperative at any event, and steps must be taken in advance to avoid potential disasters. In this session, Dave VandenHeuval of Weather Decision Technologies will discuss the importance of emergency preparedness at events and share important tools that will ensure attendees are safe and weather crises are diverted.
