National Severe Weather Preparedness Week

As a massive winter storm moves across a large swath of the country, this week seems very timely!   Launched by the Federal Emergency Management Agency, in conjunction with the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, this week is focused on improving preparedness for disruptive weather events at the personal, family, and community levels.

There are a few ways to commemorate this week, including two webinars and making a pledge:
