Do you have what it takes to be a Weather Ready Nation Ambassador? #WRN #Skywarn
The WeatherReady Nation (WRN) Ambassador initiative is an NWS effort to formally recognize our partners who are working with us to help improve the readiness, responsiveness, and overall resilience of people in our area against all the extreme weather that we experience.
The duties of a WRN Ambassador are pretty much what most of you do anyway - keep in touch with NWS Norman(maintain current point-of-contact and contact information), use NWS-generated information such as preparedness messages, and look for opportunities to work together on local preparedness events.
Any organization across all levels of government, businesses large and small, non-profit and non-governmental organizations, and academia can become a WRN Ambassador. Here are just a few examples of potential WeatherReady Nation Ambassadors in our area:
- city/county emergency management
- city/county/state law enforcement
- city/county government
- fire departments and EMS
- hospitals and medical facilities
- insurance agents/companies
- technology centers
- universities and colleges
- K-12 schools or school districts, public or private
