Tidelands Health hospitals in SC utilize Orion Weather Stations to aid in real-time decision making.

“Having the best up-to-date information on when to shelter in place from hurricanes” was the goal for Tidelands Health to purchase Orion weather stations for two hospitals in South Carolina. Patrick J. Devlin is Director of Safety, Security and Emergency Preparedness for Tidelands. An early adopter of the CWS Cloud Weather Server, Devlin describes how he shares meteorological data regularly with staff and first responders and that it helps with real-time decision making: “This is the link I drive our organization and partners to due to the security of it not having to access our secure network.”

Recently put to the test with Hurricane Isaias, Devlin commented, “We were able to monitor the storm through the cloud server. I was monitoring things from home and had no issues. I also know the weather stations were pulled up in the county emergency operations center and 911 center. It has been a great tool for us to share with our local emergency responders.”

The CWS Cloud-based Weather Server, compatible with any CWS weather station model, features real-time meteorological monitoring that is easily accessible to users through an Internet browser. Multiple weather stations can be networked, with the display including an overview option to view key data points simultaneously. Tidelands chose Orion Weather Stations – all-in-one met sensors with ultrasonic wind speed and direction measurement, rainfall, temperature, humidity, and barometric pressure – installed at two hospitals.
