Be a Force of Nature

icon for national severe weather preparedness week

This time last year, storms ripped through the central and southern United States spawning more than 300 tornadoes and claiming hundreds of lives. This year we observed National Severe Weather Preparedness Week in memory of these tragic events and to encourage everyone to learn what to do when severe weather strikes.

Even though this week is drawing to a close, that doesn’t mean your preparedness work is over. If you took the time to learn about your weather risks, develop an emergency plan or strengthen your home against severe weather then give yourself a pat on the back. But in the weeks to come, why not try convincing your friends, family, and co-workers to do the same. Review your workplace emergency plans, sign-up for alerts, or become a certified storm spotter. NOAA, FEMA, and CDC have a number of online resources, take the time to look at them and become a force of nature all year long!
