Weather Ready Nation Ambassadors

The Weather-Ready Nation Ambassador™ initiative is the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s (NOAA) effort to formally recognize NOAA partners who are improving the nation’s readiness, responsiveness, and overall resilience against extreme weather, water, and climate events. A number of public works departments across the Country already serve as Ambassadors. To learn more information, including how to apply, visit: https://www.weather.gov/wrn/ambassadors
