OneRain Incorporated, a leading provider of software, instrumentation, and systems integration to the Water Resource Management, Flood Warning, Post-Wildfire Mitigation, and Road Weather industries, is the title sponsor for the National Hydrologic Warning Council’s 13th Biennial Training Conference & Expo, June 17-20, 2019 in Louisville, Kentucky. More than 200 attendees from local, state, and emergency response agencies from around the U.S. and abroad are expected to attend the event being held in Galt House Hotel.
“This is a really important conference as we continue to see the growing risks of flooding with the steady increase in extreme hydro-meteorological events, dam failure and levee breach incidents, and destructive wild fires that are impacting the world.” said OneRain’s CEO, James Logan.
This year’s conference is devoted to real-time hydrologic warning systems and how these systems and associated technologies assist local officials with hydrologic hazard preparedness, emergency response, recovery and mitigation. It is the largest conference focused on this topic in the United States.
OneRain, part of the AE Monitoring family of companies, will present on best practices for creating more reliable decision support systems and risk reduction through innovative technologies used in real-time early warning systems.
