December 1, 2017 - Today, Technology Project Managers (TPM) learned from NOAA they are now Weather-Ready Nation Ambassadors
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. Recognition as a Weather-Ready Nation Ambassador, signifies that TPM is committing to work with NOAA and other Ambassadors to strengthen national resilience against extreme weather.
From the NOAA website:
WRN Ambassadors serve a pivotal role in affecting societal change — helping to build a nation that is ready, responsive, and resilient to the impacts of extreme weather and water events.
To be officially recognized as a WRN Ambassador, an organization must commit to:
- Promoting Weather-Ready Nation messages and themes to their stakeholders;
- Engaging with NOAA personnel on potential collaboration opportunities;
- Sharing their success stories of preparedness and resiliency;
- Serving as an example by educating employees on workplace preparedness
