Ensuring Resilient 911 Operations: Protecting Against Lightning-Induced Outages in Severe Weather 

In the world of emergency response, every second counts. 911 emergency operation centers play a vital role in ensuring the safety and well-being of the public during critical situations. However, severe weather events, particularly lightning strikes, can pose a significant threat to the continuous operation of these crucial centers.  

Lightning strikes can wreak havoc on electrical systems and cause major repercussions. When lightning directly or indirectly strikes power lines, communication towers, or other infrastructure, it can disrupt essential services, including 911 operations. Even a momentary interruption can have severe consequences, potentially delaying emergency response times and jeopardizing public safety.  

When it comes to 911 operations, resilience is key. To ensure uninterrupted emergency response services, protecting against lightning-induced outages in severe weather is necessary. By implementing effective lightning protection measures, such as installing one or more CMCE Lightning Suppressor, 911 centers can eliminate the risks associated with lightning strikes and keep our communities safe even during the most challenging weather conditions. It is vital that our emergency response services are always available when they are needed the most.  

The CMCE Lightning Suppressor is the most effective option for lightning protection because it does not attract lightning to a structure. Rather, the CMCE Lightning Suppressor inhibits the formation of lightning over a protected structure through deionization, camouflaging a protected structure from lightning strikes altogether. The CMCE device is 100% effective, lightweight, easy to install, operates without power, and protects 500,000 square feet.
