Feb 22, 2017 By Andrea Novotny, Staff Writer

The National Weather Service developed the Weather-Ready Nation program to encourage various entities in the community to take action during and before extreme weather events to reduce negative impacts of those events.

The Riverton area now has 57 organizations designated "Weather-Ready Nation Ambassadors."

The list includes Central Wyoming College, which received its designation Feb. 2.

The National Weather Service developed the Weather-Ready Nation program to encourage various entities in the community to take action during and before extreme weather events to reduce negative impacts of those events.

Riverton began participating in 2014.

Any government agencies, emergency managers, researchers, media, nonprofits or businesses that assist in information dissemination or response to extreme weather are eligible to become ambassadors.

"Here in Wyoming we have all types of severe weather hazards, and making sure we're as prepared as possible is the objective of the Weather Ready Nation program," warning coordination meteorologist Tim Troutman said. "We're always actively seeking participant organizations who are interested in working to be better prepared for weather."
