So, while at a con­fer­ence in NYC yes­ter­day, I met an asset man­age­ment guy that invests in domain names and unique busi­ness mod­els behind them.  One of them was is a ser­vice that will alert you to a sit­u­a­tion or issue that you want to be remind­ed of.  I thought it was a unique busi­ness mod­el… Then it hit me.  SHTF alerts for severe weath­er, and oth­er issues… It is free to sign up, and I just set myself up an account to get alerts for severe weath­er, the threat of flood, and storm watch.  You can also set up mul­ti­ple loca­tions where you think you will be or need to be, such as your BOL.

I think the ser­vice is in it’s infan­cy yet, but I can see this being used by myself to be alert­ed when out in the bush for severe weath­er con­di­tions and more in the future…  I will now get crit­i­cal alerts on my iPhone, but the ser­vice will work on any phone.

To me, this type of a ser­vice lends itself to pre­pared­ness and I thought I would share.
