SAN FRANCISCO-AirTouch Paging, a subsidiary of AirTouch Communications, introduced Weather-Watch, an emergency information planning service. The service provides information on severe weather conditions as they develop throughout the state of Florida.
Weather-Watch uses wireless communications to report National Weather Service advisories within seconds of transmission, 24-hours-a-day. Service subscribers are equipped with an alphanumeric pager and receive a steady flow of weather alerts and advisories.
Several Florida county Emergency Management Services departments have signed up for Weather-Watch to monitor the National Weather Bureau’s weather wire, AirTouch noted.
