Laveen Community Council formally recognized by NOAA as Weather-Ready Nation Ambassador™!
Congratulations, Laveen Community Council, Welcome to the NOAA Weather-Ready Nation Ambassador™ initiative. Your organization has been accepted as a NOAA Weather-Ready Nation Ambassador.
What does this mean for the LCC?
The Weather-Ready Nation Ambassador initiative is an effort to formally recognize NOAA partners who are improving the nation’s readiness against extreme weather, water, and climate events.
WRN Ambassadors serve a pivotal role in affecting societal change — helping to build a nation that is ready, responsive, and resilient to the impacts of extreme weather and water events. As a Weather-Ready Nation Ambassador, the Laveen Community Council is committing to work with NOAA and other Ambassadors to strengthen national resilience against extreme weather.
NOAA’s Weather-Ready Nation initiative is about building community resilience in the face of increasing vulnerability to extreme weather and water events. As part of the Weather-Ready Nation initiative, NOAA, along with partners such as the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), wants to motivate individuals and communities to take actions that will prepare them in the event of a weather disaster and to share their preparedness steps with others. These actions can save lives anywhere – at home, in schools, and in the workplace before tornadoes, hurricanes, and other extreme types of weather strike.
To be officially recognized as a NOAA Weather-Ready Ambassador, an organization must commit to:
Promoting Weather-Ready Nation messages and themes to their stakeholders;
Engaging with NOAA personnel on potential collaboration opportunities;
Sharing their success stories of preparedness and resiliency; Serving as an example by educating employees on workplace preparedness
