National Weather Service United States Department of Commerce

One of NOAA’s missions is to save life and property by providing critical environmental intelligence, including weather forecasts and warnings, to our partners and the general public. NOAA wants everyone, from communities across the country, businesses, and the public at large to be ready, responsive, and resilient to extreme weather, water, and climate events.  Weather-Ready Nation Ambassadors (WRN Ambassadors) are formally recognized by NOAA as organizations committed to collaborating with NOAA, sharing preparedness messaging in outreach to the public, and serving as examples themselves by implementing resilience best practices. Apply to become an Ambassador here




Weather-Ready Nation Ambassadors will promote awareness of and preparedness for hazardous weather within your organization and/or community. Periodic emails from NOAA will be sent to WRN Ambassadors to provide information such as links to newly posted outreach material on relevant hazards, as well as updates on experimental or newly operational NOAA products, services, or data.  At the local level weather briefings on significant weather are sent to our ambassadors and we frequently work with our ambassadors to spread awareness on upcoming opportunities to work along side the National Weather Service.   Want more information?
