Disasters affect hundreds of thousands of people every year, some with little to no advance warning. It may happen at your local Navy installation. It may happen to you.  While the Navy, emergency management, and first responders are committed to helping those in need; assistance may be delayed during a disaster. As part of the Navy community, you have a role in planning for emergencies -- Be/Stay informed. Make a plan. Build a kit.

Congratulations Naval Station Norfolk, VA on becoming a

Weather-Ready Nation Ambassador!



On June 26, 2014, Naval Station Norfolk became a Weather-Ready Nation Ambassador™ in its continuing efforts to empower the Navy Community to be prepared to face emergencies. 

The Weather-Ready Nation (WRN) Ambassador is an initiative of the U.S. Department of Commerce, National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) through which it formally recognizes NOAA partners who are working to improve the nation’s readiness against extreme weather, water, and climate events.  Weather-Ready Nation Ambassadors commit to work and engage in dialogue with NOAA and other Ambassadors to strengthen national resilience against extreme weather.

When Admiral Nimitz said this in a speech at the University of California 22 March 1950, he recognized the resiliency of Sailors during that time and the important role each member of the Navy community plays in Navy and personal readiness. It is a sentiment that still rings true today of the 21st Century Sailor - empowered to prepare ourselves and our families to face any hazards with confidence and an outcome of success.
