National Weather Service United States Department of Commerce

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 other government agencies at the national, state, and local levels, America’s Weather Industry, emergency managers, researchers, the media, nonprofits, and businesses.  Any organization committed to serving as an example and engaging their stakeholders to make our region ready, responsive, and resilient can be an Ambassador.

Whether talking about preparedness and resilience in your 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 region become more weather–ready.

Is your organization interested in developing a partnership with the National Weather Service and joining the organizations listed below?  If so, become a Weather-Ready Nation Ambassador today!
