NewsChannel 12 is a Weather-Ready Ambassador
NEW BERN, Craven County —
Being a Weather-Ready Nation Ambassador is an initiative by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s effort in improving the nation’s readiness, responsiveness, and overall resilience against extreme weather, water, and climate events. As a WRN Ambassador, StormTrack12 Meteorologists have committed to working with NOAA and other Ambassadors to strengthen national resilience against extreme weather. Our effort is to help to unify the efforts across government, non-profits, academia, and private industry toward making the nation more ready, responsive, and resilient against extreme environmental hazards.
As an Ambassador, News Channel 12 is committed to:
-- Promoting Weather-Ready Nation messages and themes to their viewers
-- Engaging with NOAA personnel on potential collaboration opportunities
-- Sharing their success stories of preparedness and resiliency
-- Serving as an example by educating employees on workplace preparedness
The WRN Ambassador initiative is the connecting hub of a vast network of federal, state, and local government agencies; emergency managers and city planners; researchers, the media; the insurance industry; nonprofit organizations; the private sector; and many others who are working together to address the impacts of extreme weather on daily life.
Together, we will inform and empower communities, businesses, and people to make pre-event decisions that can be life-saving and prevent or limit devastating economic losses. We are a nation of many communities, and it is only through connected communities that we will achieve this goal.
