GreendaleWeather.com has been named a National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) Weather-Ready Nation Ambassador.

As a WRN Ambassador, partners commit to working with NOAA and other Ambassadors to strengthen national resilience against extreme weather. The WRN Ambassador initiative helps unify the efforts across government, non-profits, academia, and private industry toward making the nation more ready, responsive, and resilient against extreme environmental hazards.
“We are honored to be a part of the NOAA Weather-Ready Nation program and are strongly committed to providing Greendale and the surrounding communities of Southeastern Wisconsin with weather data and necessary weather educational materials”, said Bill Satterlee of GreendaleWeather.com.WRN Ambassadors serve a pivotal role in affecting societal change — helping to build a nation that is ready, responsive, and resilient to the impacts of extreme weather and water events.
To be officially recognized as a WRN Ambassador, an organization must commit to promoting Weather-Ready Nation messages and themes to their stakeholders, engaging with NOAA personnel on potential collaboration opportunities, sharing their success stories of preparedness and resiliency, and serving as an example by educating employees on workplace preparedness.
