As Bushman said, the pc and whatever software you use will be able to contact you via various means.
But I also agree with Graculus, I would probably go RM Young or equivalent+ if your management is really thinking personal safety. VP2's are great, but its similar to Lightning, you should not use a Boltek at a golf course for public safety, you need something like a Thor Guard.
The console can only receive from the outside station via wireless. It can directly tap into data coming over the LAN from the envoy attached to IP weatherlink. So if you got the envoy, etc, the console would/could be used for display down on the floor the people are on, assuming it can get the signal. However, If you do go vp2 route, you should probably just try with console. If it works reliably, grab a serial weatherlink and hook up to the pc. If it does not work at that location, grab and envoy and IP weatherlink. Then sell your extra console to one of us at a great price
It will be interesting to see just how many people are still in the building as the wind approaches near cat 1 hurricane (sustained) strength, cause there would probably be some pretty nasty gusts when it was at a low speed of 65 mph sustained and rising
And get a weather radio too, NWS will let all the employees at 3littlePigsInc.com know when to man the anny monitoring station at for winds greater than or equal to 40 mph lasting for one hour or longer, or winds greater than or equal to 58 mph for any duration.
Am I headed in the right direction with using a Wireless Vantage Pro2 on the roof, then a Wireless Weather Envoy on the floor just below it, running a wire from the envoy into the LAN and then picking up the data from a Vantage receiver in the basement plugged into a LAN port? Can the Vantage receiver plug into a CAT5 cable? Or if I do it that way, am I restricted to a computer? I like the receiver instead of the computer because it alarms if the winds reach a certain run for your life speed.
