The first ever National Severe Weather Preparedness Week is April 22 - 28. The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) and the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) have partnered together to raise awareness about severe weather threats and to ask each person across the country to “Be a Force of Nature” by knowing their risk, taking action, and being an example.
Building a Weather-Ready Nation requires the action of every person and community. This Presidential Message emphasizes weather-readiness as a national priority. Together we can transform the way the United States responds to severe weather and save more lives.
