State, county and local emergency management professionals must prepare for, respond to, and recover from events ranging from severe thunderstorms, tornadoes, hurricanes, wildfires, extreme heat, floods, storm surge and other forms of extreme weather.
Prepare For and Quickly Recover From Severe Weather Events
- Inform and update emergency management and response teams.
- Create a “big picture” outlook of changing conditions for coordinated response planning
- Provide insight into specific weather parameters — such rainfall rates, dew point, wind speed and direction, and temperature — depending on the hazard scenario.
