WCM Bob Goree The StormReady program will make a real difference by improving the partnership between NWS Tallahassee and the local Emergency Management agencies. Recently retired Warning Coordination Meteorologist at NWS Tallahassee, Bob Goree, has enjoyed fostering the high level of cooperation between EMA and the NWS.

With StormReady, we will work toward an even greater level of coordination and cooperation. The reward is knowing that your people are receiving the highest level of weather service possible while gaining StormReady recognition for your efforts!
