(SUNRISE, Fla.) – Thor Guard – the world’s only lightning prediction system – has introduced the first-ever heat index technology that warns people of scorching temperatures with up to 20 minutes notice.
“Advent of Thor Guard’s proprietary heat index active local warnings overcomes an often-overlooked problem,” says Bob Dugan, President of Thor Guard. “The National Weather Service reports over 600 people annually suffer or die from heat-instigated exhaustion or strokes, and our proactive-alert technology is poised to significantly lower this number.”
The TG360 heat index feature issues two levels of alerts: a short-term suspension for temporarily dangerous conditions and a long-term suspension recommending an extended amount of time away from the conditions. Custom warnings include instantaneous automated audible visual text alerts of each index level – using LED strobe lights and audible sound.
“The new system advances us to the next generation by educating us on other forms of severe weather we should be privy to,” says Robert Markionni, Executive Director of the of Chicago District Golf Association “The original system already brought a certain advancement to our fingertips and now that advancement is heightened.”
As the longest-tenured company in the category globally, Thor Guard is widely used in 21 countries with more than 7,000 systems installed across golf courses, parks, schools and universities, cities and municipalities, air travel concerns, government agencies, mining and industrial companies, sporting events and broadcast media and more.
