Emergency Weather Stations for
The nature of hazmat response dictates that emergency weather stations be easy to deploy and operate; they must withstand rough handling and harsh conditions; be accurate and reliable; and not create additional risks.
For more than 30 years, Coastal’s WEATHERPAK® has been the #1 emergency weather station around the world. The most rugged weather station available, it is impervious to airborne chemicals, and can be deployed directly in the hot zone.
WEATHERPAK® can be set up in less than 60 seconds, without tools, by a Responder wearing full protective gear and breathing apparatus. It will survive a 6-foot drop to concrete and withstand a decontamination scrub down.
Current weather at the site of a hazmat incident is the most important determinant of where, how far, and in what concentration a hazardous material will travel.
WEATHERPAK® will transmit life-saving data immediately, including wind speed and direction, and more importantly, sigma-theta (air turbulence—the biggest factor in chemical dispersion).
Coastal maintains two distinct lines of portable hazmat weather stations: WEATHERPAK® and C-5 SAM™. Both are rugged, professional quality systems, designed specifically for Emergency and First Responders at disaster sites.
WEATHERPAK® is the only professional emergency weather station that can both meet the requirements of the Hazmat/WMD response mission and withstand the rigors associated with this mission for many years to come.
