Jefferson County Re-recognized as a StormReady County

At a presentation at a June 10th Jefferson County Commission meeting, Christopher Strong, Warning Coordination Meteorologist, Baltimore/Washington presented the County with a renewed StormReady County designation. In a letter to the County Commission president, Mr. Strong said, "It is with great pleasure that NOAA's National Weather Service Baltimore/Washington Forecast Office officially renews Jefferson County's status as a StormReady county. Jefferson County was one of West Virginia's first StormReady counties, and this continued recognition clearly shows our dedication to providing its citizens and visitors the best possible emergency preparedness. Your ability to monitor weather conditions, receive National Weather Service warnings, and disseminate life saving information to the public is exceptional. The citizens of Jefferson County are well served by these capabilities and your efforts to constantly improve. I would also like to specfically commend your Director of Emergency Management, Barbara Miller, who has been a driving force in maintaining the level of excellence needed for StormReady recognition. Together with the Jefferson County Homeland Security and Emergency Management staff, her initiative and hard work in training citizens and government agency workers, as well as maintaining strong ties with the National Weather Service, have been instrumental in maintaining Jefferson County's StormReady status...Congratulations on this notable achievement. The National Weather Service is proud to continue to have you as a part of the growing StormReady family! Our office looks forward to continue to work closely with Jefferson County to maintain our valuable alliance."
