Severe Weather and Incident Manager
Severe Weather and Incident Manager (SWIM) is an online application and solution developed for business operations who wish to register and manage multiple locations. This allows a business to add/edit locations, manage which staff get alerts and how, and monitor alerts received.
We can set up a free trial period so you can see the benefits for yourself.
This is an essential tool for business with distributed operations exposed to weather.
Customised Alerting: Receive EWN All Alerts for a state or region
Choose to receive all EWN alerts sent to one or more states, the whole country or specific regions based on the BoM district maps:
These are delivered via SMS and email. The All Alerts product is a feed of warnings issued by the Bureau of Meteorology and state fire authorities - but filtered by our alert managers. Please refer to the Weather Warning Alerting FAQ for details. Duplicate warnings are not issued so you will not be inundated with text messages.
Customised Alerting and Detailed Forecasts
Rainfall probabilities, severe weather forecasting, wind strength alerts and custom forecasts
EWN can provide location based alert services to assist with critical planning decisions for businesses and professionals. Delivered by email, SMS or fax they include rainfall probabilities, severe weather forecasting, wind strength alerts and custom forecasts. These are ideal for construction, resources, energy, government and the business sector.
Forecasts are issued by qualified meteorologists in a tailored format and time frequency to suit your needs. For example:
Winds are likely to swing towards the northeast in the coming hours and strengthen thanks to a complex low pressure trough which will result in moderate to heavy rainfall across the Sydney-Illawarra-Hunter region today. Forecast model guidance for today is highly varied - and as such this forecast has a higher degree of uncertainty but observation stations further north of Port Kembla are all showing significantly increased wind speeds during the last few
hours as the winds have swung towards the northeast and this trend is expected to continue southwards this morning and persist today. However should this fail to reach the area winds may be much lighter than forecast.
