Weather is one of the most likely disruptors to all planned events and operations. Each year severe and other inclement weather cause delays, postponements, cancellations and in some cases serious injuries and even fatalities to athletes, event staff and fans. Organizations managing events must have weather identified as a risk and adjust their planning based on the realistic assessment of historical and potential weather events and impacts. In this webinar, representatives from the Disaster Science Operations Center (DSOC), located at Western Kentucky University discuss how we can plan for and monitor the weather to improve the level of safety and fan experience if severe weather does strike.
