Weather Ready Nation
USF is taking a proactive approach to prepare for extreme weather, and is currently recognized through the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) as a Weather-Ready Nation Ambassador.
The Weather-Ready Nation Ambassador initiative is NOAA’s effort to formally recognize NOAA partners who are improving the nation’s readiness, responsiveness, and overall resilience against extreme weather, water, and climate events.
As a WRN Ambassador, USF commits to working with NOAA and other Ambassadors to strengthen national resilience against extreme weather. In effect, the WRN Ambassador initiative helps unify the efforts across government, non-profits, academia, and private industry toward making the nation more ready, responsive, and resilient against extreme environmental hazards. WRN is a strategic outcome where society’s response should be equal to the risk from all extreme weather, water, and climate hazards.
