This application automates the risk assessment model known as the green/amber/red (GAR) model. This program supports three versions - the normal US Coast Guard model, equipment included as an extra parameter, and a model developed for the pacific northwest environment. In addition, the program accesses the NOAA forecast data for either an area specified by zip code or lat/long, or the area determined by the iPhone. Additional weather data is obtained from the National Buoy Data Center. Once completed, the GAR report can be emailed, providing a record of it.
Please note that this application is not authorized, developed by, or supported by the US Coast Guard. It is based on publicly available materials. Also, please note that neither Pacific Northwest Software or any other entity makes any claims that the software will operate correctly or that it is suitable to determine risk. By using the program you assume full responsibility and hold all others blameless for any and all actions made using it.
