Businesses, schools, and other non-governmental entities often establish severe weather safety plans and actively take part and promote severe weather safety awareness activities. An entity that promotes the principles and guidelines of the StormReady program may be eligible to become a StormReady "Supporter."

Examples of potential StormReady Supporters might include, but are not limited to businesses, hospitals, shopping centers and malls, schools, and nuclear power plants.

What are StormReady® Supporter Eligibility Requirements?

StormReady Supporters are local entities that promote the principles and guidelines of the StormReady program into their severe weather/tsunami safety and awareness plans.Entities may be eligible as a StormReady Supporter based on the bylaws of the local NWS StormReady Advisory Board and the endorsement from local emergency management. Final approval for StormReady Supporter designation is made by local StormReady Advisory Boards.

Previous StormReady® recognition of the county or community in which the applying entity resides is not a requirement to achieve StormReady Supporter designation.

There is no national requirement for StormReady Supporter re-recognition once an entity is approved as a supporter. However, local NWS StormReady Advisory Boards may establish re-designation time frames in their bylaws if they deem it necessary.

How are StormReady® Supporters Recognized?

Successful StormReady® Supporter applicants will receive a StormReady Supporter Certificate(s) dated and signed by the Meteorologist in Charge of the local NWS Office. The date printed on the StormReady® Supporter Certificate(s) will be considered the official date of the Supporter designation. Recognized StormReady® Supporters will also be listed on the NWS National StormReady Web page.

How can I become a StormReady® Supporter?

Entities interested in becoming a StormReady Supporter should contact their local NWS Warning Coordination Meteorologist (WCM) for further information about the program. Your local WCM will help guide you through the application process.
