StormReady Logo

StormReady prepares communities with a plan that responds to weather hazards.

Local National Weather Service forecast offices work with communities to complete an application and review process. Some items that a community must do to become officially StormReady:
  • Establish a 24-hour warning point and emergency operations center;
  • Have more than one way to receive weather forecasts and warnings and be able to alert the public;
  • Promote the importance of public readiness through community seminars;
  • Develop a weather plan which includes training severe weather spotters

Burleigh County received StormReady designation in 2004.
