BuffaloWatch Desktop Alerts

 
BuffaloWatch is a PC based emergency alert system which improves public notification of local, state and national emergency warnings. It provides rapid notification of emergencies issued through the U.S. Department of Homeland Security or local officials, state Amber Alerts for missing children and threats of severe weather from the National Weather Service.

The application can either run fully open on your desktop or as a minimized application – showing the current temperature – in your system tray. The system will sit idle on your personal computer until an alert is issued. When an emergency is declared, it will sound a warning through the PC, followed by a pop-up screen explaining the type of emergency. You can reduce the screen after receiving the alert, however updated information will immediately scroll across the bottom of the screen.
