  • 25. Lightning Dangers and Facts • Lightning is the most dangerous and frequently encountered weather hazard people experience each year and is the number one cause of storm related death • It is estimated that there are approximately 100,000 thunderstorms in the US alone each year • Americans are twice as likely to die from lightning than from hurricanes, tornadoes or floods • F.E.M.A. (The Federal Emergency Management Agency) estimates that there are 200 deaths and 750 severe injuries from lightning each year 24
  • 26. Lightning Dangers and Facts • Most lightning strikes occur either at the beginning or at the end of a storm • The average lightning strike extends out 6 to 10 miles long but can travel as far as 120 miles • Lightning reaches 50,000 degrees Fahrenheit which is 4 times as hot as the sun’s surface • Voltage in a ground to cloud strike reach from 100 million to 1 billion volts • 70% of all lightning fatalities and injuries occur in the afternoon 25
  • 27. Lightning Dangers and Facts • In the last 50 years, the National Weather Service and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration has reported that lightning has struck and killed over 3,700 individuals Note: Whenever there is a threat of lightning or severe weather, avoid wide open areas, trees, electronic devices and water and seek shelter in the lowest level of a sturdy and stable facility with a properly installed lightning protection system that meets U.S. Safety Standards UL and NFPA 26

  • 32. The Difference is ProActive • All of our products and services are intuitive by design – There are other systems on the market that use after-the-fact and belated information – We use real-time DATA and programmed logic that provides tools to help prevent disaster • All of our hardware instruments are required to be on-site – Other service providers use and depend on off-site instruments and third parties • We are as redundant as feasibly possible with DATA processed and delivered onsite and offsite – Redundant service runs locally and offsite in secure Data Center, 24/7, with uninterruptable power supply and generator – Our Software service is developed, monitored and supported in- house – All events are logged and backed-up offsite – Our systems are automated with manual over-rides because artificial intelligence does not replace common sense – We manage all preventative maintenance and redundancy is our priority 31
