StormReady is a nationwide community preparedness program that uses a grassroots approach to help communities develop plans to handle all types of severe weather from tornadoes to blizzards. The program encourages communities to take a new, proactive approach to improving local hazardous weather operations by providing emergency managers with clear-cut guidelines on how to improve their hazardous weather operations.

To be officially StormReady, a community must:
  1. Establish a 24-hour warning point and emergency operations center.
  2. Have more than one way to receive severe weather warnings and forecasts and to alert the public.
  3. Create a system that monitors weather conditions locally.
  4. Promote the importance of public readiness through community seminars.
  5. Develop a formal hazardous weather plan, which includes training severe weather spotters and holding emergency exercises.
