FEMA is asking all of us to “Be a Force of Nature” and better prepare for severe weather threats as part of National Severe Weather Preparedness Week March 3-9, 2013.
Sponsored by FEMA and the National Oceanic Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), National Severe Weather Preparedness Week is a nationwide effort to increase awareness of severe weather and to motivate individuals, families, businesses, and communities to take actions that will prepare them in the event of severe weather.
“By taking a few steps now, you can be better prepared for severe weather,” said Ken Murphy, FEMA Region 10 Regional Administrator. “We are asking everyone to know their risk, take action and be an example in your communities on how to be prepared.”
