STORM READY

 

Harford County is a Storm Ready County!

The Harford County Division of Emergency Operations is certified by the National Weather Service as a StormReady County.

StormReady is a nationwide community preparedness program that uses a grassroots approach to help communities develop plans to handle all types of severe weather-from tornadoes to tsunamis. The program encourages communities to take a new, proactive approach to improving local hazardous weather operations by providing emergency managers with clear-cut guidelines on how to improve their hazardous weather operations.

To be officially StormReady, a community must: Establish a 24-hour warning point and emergency operations center; Have more than one way to receive severe weather warnings and forecasts and to alert the public; Create a system that monitors weather conditions locally; Promote the importance of public readiness through community seminars; Develop a formal hazardous weather plan, which includes training severe weather spotters and holding emergency exercises.

Harford County as a StormReady County is better prepared to save lives from the onslaught of severe weather through better planning, education, and awareness. No community is storm proof, but StormReady can help communities save lives.
