Hurrevac Exercises and Exercise Services

States and Regions occasionally conduct exercises using Hurrevac, and Hurrevac storm track exercise files are created and posted on the hurrevac.com site by Sea Island Software during the exercise, as if in real time (although it can be on an accelerated basis instead of every 6 hours to accommodate the exercise timetable).

Exercise Services (3 levels)

If your state or community would like to conduct an exercise using bogus Hurrevac exercise data files, Sea Island Software can provide the data feed incrementally (for each advisory as if in real time) to your Hurrevac users on an exercise schedule you specify.

We can also provide other exercise services up to and including full turnkey exercise service (we have 36 years of National Weather Service meteorologist experience).

Call us at (888)840-4089 for pricing or email us at

support@hurrevac.com with your request.
