National Severe Weather Preparedness Week - March 2 - 8, 2014
February 28, 2014
Severe weather can occur at any time; your best chance of survival is being prepared. Beginning March 2
is National Severe Weather Preparedness Week sponsored by the National Oceanic Atmospheric Agency (NOAA) and the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA). This year’s theme is Be a Force of Nature: Take the Next Step.
Being a force of nature is taking proactive steps of knowing your risk, being prepared and taking appropriate actions before, during and after extreme weather. Even more than that, being a force of nature means saving lives by inspiring others to do the same through social media and face-to-face conversations with your friends, family and neighbors. Social science research confirms that people are more likely to take preparedness measures in advance and action during an event when they observe others doing so.
Take the Next Step is requesting the public to
take a single preparedness action during each day of National Severe Weather Preparedness Week.
This can be as simple as preparing an emergency communications plan for your family, putting an emergency kit together, keeping important papers and valuables in a safe place, and getting involved to make your community safe.
In summary, these actions will ensure that communities are better prepared for severe weather.
