Staying in the Know
Severe weather can come out of nowhere. Here in Mobile, we are all too familiar with forceful pop up thunderstorms that can strike at any time, especially in the summer. How do you stay ready? Watching the weather while you are getting ready for the day, doesn’t always keep your prepared. With today’s technology there are a wide variety of ways to receive notifications and SERVPRO of Southwest Mobile wants to make sure you are “Ready for whatever happens”. If you have your email linked to your mobile device and receive up to the minute notifications, this may be a great option for receiving severe weather alerts. If you are like many of us and don’t want to have to think emails when you aren’t at work, text messaging may be a better choice. Text messages area a great way to make sure you receive alerts. Just always make sure to go to your device settings and allow notifications. If you set your phone to do not disturb during certain hours, make sure that text message notifications from your platform of choice are set to allow. As far as what service you use, the options are almost limitless. From local news stations to national outlets such as NOAA and apps such as Weather Underground, the best thing to do is try them out and stick with the one that works best for your needs.
