Disaster Recovery Tip #17: National Severe Weather Preparedness Week

Force of Nature

As we mark the first anniversary of one of the largest tornado outbreaks in U.S. history, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) and the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) are teaming up this week to save lives from severe weather by encouraging the public to take proactive preparedness measures and inspire others to do the same.

As part of the first ever National Severe Weather Preparedness Week, citizens are encouraged to be a "force of nature" through a number of proactive steps:
  • Know Your Risk: Be aware of the severe weather risks in your area. It is also important to understand how these potential threats could impact you and your family.
  • Take Action: Develop a plan. Put together an emergency kit and practice where and how to take shelter should severe weather strike.
  • Be an Example: Actively promote what you're doing when severe weather is headed your way. Create a YouTube video, post your story on Facebook, comment on our LinkedIn page or send a tweet to let people know you are taking shelter as it may encourage others to follow suit.
