Meteorologist Advice for Wildfire Preparedness
Wildfires are becoming more frequent and severe, affecting thousands of lives and properties each year. For organizations located in areas threatened by wildfires, or with remote workers located in those areas, it’s vital to have a wildfire preparedness plan to protect people and minimize impact.
Jason Moreland, Senior Meteorologist at AlertMedia, joins us for part two of our 2022 Weather Series to discuss everything organizations need to know to prepare for wildfires.
In this episode, Jason explains:
