Charles Mears State Park Now StormReady

On Tuesday, August 28th, Meteorologists from NWS Grand Rapids designated Charles Mears State Park as a StormReady State Park in a ceremony at the park. 

StormReady is a program in which NWS officials work with different types of communities (including cities, counties, universities, State Parks, etc...) in making sure that procedures during hazardous weather situations will help to protect the citizens of the communities. A communty is designated as StormReady once the NWS evaluates an application that is submitted by a community, and confirms the procedures on the application meet the standards set forth by the NWS for the size of the community.
