The City of Moreno Valley has been named a National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) “StormReady®” City, marking the first City in Riverside County to receive the honor for its proactive approach to storm preparedness.
To earn the StormReady® designation, the community must possess a solid communication network and have a comprehensive multi-hazard emergency operations plan. The community must also:
• Establish a 24-hour warning point and emergency operations center
• Have multiple methods to receive and disseminate severe weather warnings and information for their community
• Have various methods to monitor weather conditions locally
• Promote the importance of public readiness
• Develop a formal hazardous weather action plan, including severe weather spotter training and drills.
StormReady® uses a grassroots approach to help communities develop plans to handle everything from tornados to tsunamis. The StormReady® program helps communities with a new proactive approach in identifying local weather-related hazards to save lives and property before, during, and after the event.
No community is storm proof, but StormReady® can help communities save lives.
The City of Moreno Valley has a plan in place, equipment to monitor weather hazards, and is prepared to react to storm related events.
