Severe Weather

National Severe Weather Preparedness Week is April 22 to April 28. This initiative highlights the importance of planning and practicing how and where to take shelter before severe weather, such as tornadoes and severe thunderstorms, strike.

Your friends, neighbors and colleagues are more likely to prepare for the various weather hazards that frequently impact the nation when they see those around them prepare, so inspire them to act by being an example yourself.

Pledge to Prepare

Mobile technology and social media also offer great opportunities to show others how to prepare. When you are aware of danger, take action and then tell those around you what you’ve done to get them to take the same steps.

How else can you Be a Force of Nature? Each day we’ll highlight a new way you can increase both you and your community’s preparedness this week. Check the tabs below for details.
