NWS Watch, Warning and Advisory Survey for Decision-makers


NOAA’s National Weather Service (NWS) is conducting a survey that is gauging how decision-makers, such as animal care and control officials, use NWS watches, warnings and advisories. Your feedback will play an important role in any decisions on how to improve NWS hazard messages.

This survey is part of the NWS Hazard Simplification Project, which is analyzing the use and effectiveness of NWS watches, warnings and advisories, and evaluating possible alternatives to these terms. The survey will assess the extent to which organizations (at all levels and in various sectors) have formally incorporated watches, warnings and advisories into their decision-making processes via policies, protocols, laws, etc. For instance, are there animal care and control agencies and organizations with a written policy that says if a Hurricane Watch is issued, then XYZ needs to happen?


Survey answers will help the NWS understand the potential policy impact on various key partners if it significantly changes watches, warnings or advisories, such as altering the meaning or name of a particular watch, warning or advisory.


This survey will close after October 31, 2016. To take the survey, please visit
