Weather Awareness

National Weather Service

The National Weather Service is a excellent resource for current weather conditions and preparedness. Welcome to meteorological winter!  Some parts of the country have already experienced winter weather and we hope you have been able to use our Winter Preparedness page.

And now you can take full advantage of our Winter Safety campaign with a wide array of resources...from template blog narratives to social media posts.  Help us build a Weather-Ready Nation this winter by engaging your employees on the hazards in your area and promote to your stakeholders.  Together we can encourage communities, businesses, and individuals to know their risks, take action, and be an example to others.

Access the Winter Safety Campaign where you can find material in our >Outreach Toolkit . You can use these resources throughout the winter season. One easy contribution we encourage you to make is posting safety messages on your social media platforms.  At the bottom of this email are posts for Facebook, Twitter (use the hashtag #WinterSafety), and Instagram

National Preparedness Month and America's PrepareAthon

Every September is National Preparedness Month (NPM), and NOAA and the National Weather Service are working closely with FEMA to support NPM and America's PrepareAthon, which culminates on September 30 with the National Day of Action.  This year's theme is "Don't Wait. Communicate.  Make your emergency plan today."  Use #PrepareAthon.
