Frederick County Receives StormReady® Certification

StormReady Public Briefing  112018


Frederick County has earned its StormReady® certification from the National Weather Service.  NWS Meteorologist Chris Strong presented County Executive Jan Gardner with the certificate during a public information briefing.

“We are proud to be named a StormReady® county by the National Weather Service,” said Executive Gardner. “The designation recognizes our commitment to our citizens’ safety. While no area is stormproof, Frederick County is proactive in dealing with severe weather that can affect our county.” 

In general, a community must possess a solid communication network and have a comprehensive multi-hazard emergency operations plan to receive the StormReady® status.

Frederick County Government’s efforts include monitoring weather and water conditions, keeping the public in informed through multiple channels, working with the community so that people who live and work here are prepared, and training for citizens such as the Storm Spotter training coordinated by the Division of Emergency Management.
