This page is intended to provide information that may be helpful in getting prepared to deal with dangerous weather situations.

The National Weather Service works closely with emergency managers, amateur radio operators, trained spotters, law enforcement agencies, and the media to both prepare for storms, and to get warnings and other important storm information into the hands of those in harm's way. This page is also intended to provide resources for those working in partnership with the NWS.
