OU SCAN Becomes NOAA Weather-Ready Nation Ambassador™
July 19, 2018
OU SCAN is proud to announce that we’ve been accepted as an NOAA (National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration) 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, OU SCAN is committing to work with NOAA and other Ambassadors to strengthen national resilience against extreme weather.
As an Ambassador, OU SCAN will serve as change agents and leaders within its organization. We will inspire others to be better informed and prepared, thus helping to minimize, mitigate, or avoid the impacts of natural disasters. WRN Ambassadors can encourage these changes in their organization in a number of ways, including:
- Setting an example by becoming “weather-ready” yourself (e.g., making employee preparedness a priority and having a disaster plan);
- Promoting Weather-Ready Nation key messages in outreach activities; and
- Providing incentives to constituents and stakeholders to become more resilient.
In return, NOAA will support OU SCAN’s efforts and provide resources in support of the Weather-Ready Nation Ambassador initiative. Read more about the initiative here: “https://www.weather.gov/wrn/“
OU SCAN would like to thank Treasurer Aspen Endriss for her work in making this initiative become a reality for OU SCAN.
