Storm Ready

StormReady, a voluntary program, is designed to help communities take a pro-active approach to the kinds of severe weather that affect their area by improving local hazardous weather operations and heightening public awareness. Communities work with the local National Weather Service office, state and local emergency managers to become "StormReady". Applications are supplied below.

The program was started by the National Weather Service Forecast Office in Tulsa as an effort to educate residents about storm safety. It is now expanding nationwide in an effort to spread information about severe weather preparedness and what to do when severe weather strikes.

For a county or community to be recognized as "StormReady", they must meet predetermined criteria as set by National, Regional, and Local StormReady Advisory Boards. The criteria includes such things as a 24-hour Warning Point and/or Emergency Operations Center, placing NOAA Weather Radios in all locally owned government facilities, and maintaining NWS trained spotter networks.
