AccuWeather Recognized as National Ambassador

The U.S. National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) named AccuWeather as a Weather-Ready Nation Ambassador and is one of NOAA’s first organizations to receive the honor. The Weather-Ready Nation (WRN) Ambassador initiative recognizes organizations committed to helping the nation be better prepared for, respond to, and recover from weather-related disasters. Your company and others have the opportunity to gain WRN Ambassador standing through AccuWeather as well.

Important information and tips provided by WRN includes:

Know Your Risk: The first step to becoming weather-ready is to understand the type of hazardous weather that can affect where you live and work, and how the weather could impact you and your family. Sign up for weather alerts and check the weather forecast regularly.

Take Action: Make sure you and your family are prepared for severe weather. You may not be together when a storm strikes, so plan how you will contact one another by developing your family communication plan. Put together an emergency kit and store important papers and valuables in a safe place.

Be An Example: Once you have taken action, tell family, friends, and co-workers to do the same. Technology today makes it easier than ever to share the resources and alert systems you discovered through your social media network.
