...Building a Weather-Ready Nation - are you ready to help?...

This week is Severe Weather Preparedness Week in Indiana. Everyone
has a critical role during severe weather. That role is to be
prepared and respond when threatened by hazardous weather.

This ties to the vision of NOAA`s National Weather Service where we
work toward building a Weather-Ready Nation.

NOAA`s Weather-Ready Nation is about readying your community for
extreme weather, water and climate events.

The devastating impacts of extreme events like violent tornadoes and
widespread flooding 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. Our offices now provide forecast information
in a way that better supports government officials, businesses and
the public to make fast, smart decisions to save lives and property
and enhance livelihoods.

While we at NOAA are taking steps towards building a Weather-Ready
Nation, we cannot 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 government agencies, researchers, the
media, non-profits 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.

On Saturday, we will review key activities tied to weather hazards
and building a Weather-Ready Nation.
