Baron Announces Baron Threat Net for Public Safety

Access localized weather data anytime, anywhere

Huntsville, AL – Baron, a leading provider of critical weather solutions, announces its Baron Threat Net suite of products, an active weather monitoring and forecasting tool for public safety, featuring operations center, mobile and web-based accessibility. Baron Threat Net allows users to monitor weather and safety for situational awareness by location and includes simple custom alerts including Baron exclusive location-based Pinpoint Alerting and standard alerts from the National Weather Service (NWS). These alerts can be delivered via in-app notifications, push or text notifications, and e-mail. Baron’s technology is designed to be user friendly and accessible to a wide range of customers who might not have any meteorological background. Its weather intelligence and dynamic viewing platforms provide acute situational awareness which aids in smart decision making. Threat Net is an ideal product for use in a variety of public safety settings such as hospitals, government agencies, public schools, outdoor venues and stadiums.

According to Phyllis Little, Director, Cullman County, Alabama Emergency Management Agency, “I’m an Emergency Manager, not a Meteorologist. [Baron Threat Net] helps me focus on what I need to know instead of too much overly confusing weather information.”

Baron’s Threat Net suite is unmatched in the public safety and weather monitoring space. Threat Net incorporates three easy ways to track inclement weather: web portal, custom alerts, and mobile app capability. The fully-featured web portal weather monitoring system provides street level views and the ability to layer numerous data products. Threat Net also offers a mobile companion application for iOS and Android which allows access to real-time weather monitoring on the go.

These three methods of using Threat Net offer public safety monitoring to everyone, not just meteorologists. “It is very helpful that [Baron Threat Net] is so easy to use…does not require a lot of training for volunteers to step in and use it,” said Tyler Smith, of Tennessee’s Emergency Management Agency.
