Businesses, schools, and other non-governmental entities often establish severe weather safety plans and actively take part and promote severe weather safety awareness activities. An entity that promotes the principles and guidelines of the StormReady program may be eligible to become a StormReady “Supporter”.
Examples of potential StormReady Supporters might include, but are not limited to businesses, hospitals, shopping centers and malls, schools, and nuclear power plants.
What are StormReady Supporter Eligibility Requirements?
StormReady Supporters are local entities that promote the principles and guidelines of the StormReady program into their severe weather safety and awareness plans. Entities may be eligible as a StormReady Supporter based on the bylaws of the local NWS StormReady Advisory board and the endorsement from local emergency management. Final approval for StormReady Supporter designation is made by local StormReady Advisory Boards.
How are StormReady Supporters Recognized?
Successful StormReady Supporter applicants will receive a StormReady Supporter Certificate dated and signed by the Meteorologist in Charge. The date printed on the StormReady Supporter Certificate will be considered the official date of the Supporter designation. Recognized StormReady Supporters will also be listed on the NWS National StormReady Web page.
