We have been collecting drowning data since 2008. This process involves about 1100-man hours per year plus cost for programs and support. Recently we have faced the following challenges:
· Some of the thousands of websites we visit for our report data have now started charging subscription fees. While these are only .99 cents a week they add up over the period of a year.
· Due to the number of sites, we use for information and reports, we have been exposed (multiple times) to viruses and have had to move to enterprise grade protection.
· Our users have requested many features that we were not able to offer before: custom reports, online searchability, ease of access and more.
It is time for TAP-LLC to update the way we collect and present data. This has a cost that we cannot totally absorb, and after talking to many users it is too important to just lose! We are moving to a subscription-based model. $99.95 per year will get you all the information you are used to plus:
· Report filtering options
· Custom reports (emailed on a customer set schedule)
· Ability to submit drownings (requires approval)
· Online and accessible 24/7 – no more waiting for the first of the month
· Enhanced field logic
· Alert notifications (new drownings in your area)
· Much, Much More!
All this for less than $9 per month.
The membership will become effective in March of 2021 with February featuring the last free version of drowning reports. January will offer the yearly membership sign up option for the new program and reports and offer a sneak preview for what’s new.
We hope this is a valuable service that you will continue to use. The new features will also allow members to more easily extract local data and customize reports.
