StormReady is a nationwide program of the National Weather Service that helps communities protect their citizens during severe weather, and encourages communities to take a proactive approach to improving local hazardous weather operations.

StormReady communities are better prepared to save lives from the onslaught of severe weather through advanced planning, education, and awareness. No community is storm proof, but programs such as StormReady and TsunamiReady can help communities save lives.

Is your installation Storm Ready?

Navy Regional and Installation Emergency Managers are taking great strides to be ready when seconds count in an emergency. Many have worked to make their installation StormReady and/or Tsunami Ready.
