For use by personnel on site the key factors are line of sight, and the primary location of a possible incident in relationship to the designated areas of reasonable safety. In other words, “Where did it happen, where am I going to go, and can I see the wind on the way’. One unit should be visible by workers when using an exit. The Wind Tracker can be seen up to 1/4 mile away but obstructions along the evacuation route may necessitate the need for one or more additional units.
