NWS Watch, Warning and Advisory Survey for Decision-makers

NOAA's National Weather Service is conducting a survey that is gauging how decision makers, such as floodplain risk professionals, use NWS watches, warnings and advisories. Your feedback will play an important role in any decisions on how to improve NWS hazard messages.

The survey will assess the extent to which organizations (at all levels and in various sectors) have formally incorporated watches, warnings and advisories into their decision-making processes via policies, protocols, laws, etc. For instance, are there floodplain management entities with a written policy that says if a flood watch is issued, then XYZ needs to happen?

Survey answers will help the NWS understand the potential policy impact on various key partners if it significantly changes watches, warnings or advisories, such as altering the meaning or name of a particular watch, warning or advisory.

This survey will close after Oct. 31, 2016. To take the survey, visit https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/62DX6TC.
