ABOUT THE WEATHER-READY NATION PROGRAM

FROM NOAA: The devastating impacts of extreme events like record breaking snowfall, violent tornadoes, destructive hurricanes, widespread flooding, and devastating drought can be reduced by taking advanced action, which is why the Weather–Ready Nation initiative is so important.

What is NOAA doing to build a Weather-Ready Nation?

NOAA’s National Weather Service is transforming its operations to help America respond. Offices now provide forecast information in a way that better supports emergency managers, first responders, government officials, businesses and the public make fast, smart decisions to save lives and property and enhance livelihoods. NOAA’s Office of Oceanic and Atmospheric Research and National Environmental Satellite, Data, and Information Service are moving new science and technology into National Weather Service operations that will improve forecasts and ultimately increase weather-readiness. While we at NOAA are taking steps towards building a Weather–Ready Nation, we can not do it alone!

What can you do to help us build a Weather–Ready Nation?

Become a Weather–Ready Nation Ambassador! Building a Weather–Ready Nation requires action from other government agencies at the national, state, and local levels, America’s Weather Industry, emergency managers, researchers, the media, nonprofits, and businesses.  Any organization committed to serving as an example and engaging their stakeholders to make this country ready, responsive, and resilient can be an Ambassador. Weather–Ready Nation can help start a dialog within our local communities that will ultimately reduce the risk of being adversely impacted by extreme weather and water events and increase community resilience (the ability to recover) for future extreme events. Whether talking about preparedness and resilience in your home, office, at community centers, within schools or local businesses, on your website, or on social media, you will be helping to spread the word, inspire others to take action, and helping our great nation become more weather–ready.
