Fast Help through Portable Weather Stations from FTS

In some cases, permanently installed weather stations are not enough, such as in dangerous wildfires that spread quickly and can cause disasters. To this end, our Canadian partners from FTS have developed a clever solution to set up complete weather stations including cabinet within a short time exactly where they are urgently needed…
