While Citizen App started as an app to help people avoid dangerous areas such as crime scenes, it has evolved to prove comprehensive information on severe weather situations thanks to its new weather alerts feature.
Citizen announced that it has partnered with the National Weather Service (NWS) to deliver severe weather alerts to Citizen users in real-time.
This feature works to provide users with real-time updates on dangerous weather conditions and provide them with actionable information on what to do during these situations including staying indoors, finding shelter, or making sure to avoid a certain area. More than just another weather reporting app, let’s take a look at what makes the Citizen App weather alerts features so special.
Get Info Directly from the National Weather Services
The National Weather Service (NWS) is usually the first to know about weather emergencies. By getting its data directly from the NWS, the Citizen App weather alert features can quickly inform people in affected areas of what to expect, and what they should be doing to stay safe during the emergency. Also of note is the fact that a map highlighting hazardous areas will be provided as well.
Helping People Help Each other
Another reason the weather alert feature is so useful is the fact that users can post their updates regarding emergencies and hazardous weather occurrences. This means that information can be shared even faster than the NWS provides, and will help to keep even more people safe as a result. It should also be mentioned that not only does the weather alert feature targets areas of maximum relevance. This means that people outside of the affected areas won’t be receiving constant updates and reports that aren’t relevant to them. This makes the Citizen App a more convenient way to get weather alerts that matter and will ensure that when an alert is posted, the users will know that it is something that should be taken seriously.
