We are StormReady

The City of Moore was first certified as a StormReady community in 2001, when we were in the first group of cities certified within the NWS-Norman service area.  This 2012 renewal marks our third full certification review.

StormReady certification is based upon multiple criteria, including:

*   Establishment of a 24-hour warning point and emergency operations center;
*   Having multiple methods to receive severe weather warnings and forecasts and to alert the public;
*   Creation of a system that monitors weather conditions locally;
*   Promoting the importance of public readiness through community seminars;
*   Development a formal hazardous weather plan, which includes training severe weather spotters and holding emergency exercises.
