COSTEP MA weather alerts are sent out when the National Weather Service forecasts a severe storm or weather event, which could include high winds, heavy rainfall, snow, or even drought periods. Examples of collections-related tips, which are specific to each weather event and alert, range from checking your gutters and sump pumps in case of urban flooding to tips to help winterize your collections facility.
