Stay Risk Informed. Be Prepared - Switzerland's Multi Hazard Early Warning System
- Government of Switzerland
- Omar Bellprat
The success of Switzerland's early warning system is based on three key factors: collaboration and data sharing, technological and organisational innovation, and service-oriented channels and communication.
Gathering accurate and reliable data for weather forecasts is the first link in the chain. But reliable data is only truly effective if it is shared. Switzerland's early warning system is effective because all parties – from the local to the institutional, from the municipal to the federal level – share the data they collect within the early warning network. They also share a common understanding: working together to protect the public.
