WIND — Next Generation

The WIND - Next Generation information system enables a variety of customizable warning and information services to be made available via smartphone apps. The aim of this »all-round warning service« is that timely alerts in the various areas of life enable users to make necessary preparations and prevent personal injury or damage to property.

Launched in 2019, the system provides alerts of threats in personal and home environments with customized safety checklists through various apps. Since November 2020, it has also been disseminating local warnings about the risk of burglary and prevention information via both the MehrWetter and KATWARN apps in collaboration with the North-Rhine Westphalia police.
