Statewide Virtual Meeting Wednesday December 14th: Winter and All-Season Weather Preparedness: Forensic Meteorology for Slip and Fall Lawsuits and More

View Calendar

Personal injury lawsuits can strike like a bolt out of the blue, but there are simple things every landlord can do to minimize your risk. We will cover:

  • Top exposures for property owners and managers.
  • Easy things you can do to prevent weather-related injury.
  • Apps and resources to manage weather alerts across your team.
  • The Storm Ready Certification: Supporter Designation.
  • How forensic weather analysis can decide the outcome of a case.

Attendees will leave with actionable steps to take to reduce the likelihood of ice or other weather-related liability.

Winter weather is a major liability for property owners.

Part of this event will be presented by Dr. Alicia Wasula, President of STM Weather. Weather impacts everyone. Dr. Wasula’s passion is helping you understand how to use information and science to save time and money, prevent injuries, and save lives.

As an educator, she was driven to help her students understand tough concepts and make abstract ideas relevant and real. Every aspect of her business is saturated with that sense of purpose. Whether she is communicating weather information to attorneys or juries for litigation purposes, property owners for weather preparedness training, or community groups, her goal is to help them understand how the weather works in a way that is relevant to them and to communicate complex information in an understandable, relatable way.

STM Weather was founded in 2004 as Shade Tree Meteorology. Originally a forensic-based firm, it has grown over the years into a full-service meteorological firm. As STM Weather has grown, they have expanded their services to include weather planning and trainings, seminars and speaking engagements, and data-driven consulting which helps answer questions such as “When is the best time of year to plant tomatoes in my backyard?”, “What is the most likely weather hazard I will encounter at my location?”, or “What is the best way to receive weather information?” We are fully committed to serving each of our clients with kindness and respect, giving them a scientifically sound, complete analysis, and delivering our findings in a clear, easy-to-understand manner.
