Led by Jessica Proud, a project team from the Renaissance Computing Institute (RENCI) has partnered with the North Carolina State Climate Office and the National Weather Service to develop and deploy NC-FIRST.

NC-FIRST is a program designed to help first responders and county emergency managers decipher weather data, understand weather threats and choose actions that minimize the threats to lives and property caused by extreme weather.

This customizable Web portal environment aggregates information - radar imagery, watches and warnings and surface observations - from a wide range of weather Web sites, satellites and radars into a format that is easy-to-use - and easy to carry.
