The City of Snoqualmie has joined the National Weather Service as a National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) Weather-Ready Nation Ambassador.
The Weather-Ready Nation Ambassador initiative is an effort to formally recognize NOAA partners who are improving the nation’s readiness against extreme weather, water, and climate events. As a Weather-Ready Nation Ambassador, the City of Snoqualmie is committed to working with NOAA and other ambassadors to strengthen national resilience against extreme weather.
“In our area, we are subject to flooding, windstorms, and snowstorms, along with the threat of earthquakes,” said Snoqualmie Fire Chief and Emergency Management Director Mark Correira. “Being a weather-ready partner is a way to educate and involve the community for greater preparedness when severe weather strikes.”
