City of Jackson Earns StormReady Designation

Pearl – The city of Jackson is the 15th Mississippi community to earn the National Weather Service’s StormReady designation. A ceremony marking this achievement is scheduled for 11 a.m. Thursday, at the Jackson City Hall Ceremonial Room, 219 South President Street.

“The City of Jackson has dedicated resources to ensure that our citizens and visitors are better protected during weather emergencies,” said Jackson Mayor Harvey Johnson. “My administration recognizes the value of the StormReady program, and we are proud to be designated as a StormReady city. Achieving the StormReady designation demonstrates that we’ve implemented the tools to get needed information to the public during serious weather events.”

Mississippi has 24 counties, 15 communities, four state universities and three government sites designated as StormReady in Mississippi.

“The StormReady program is about protecting and informing our residents of the threats posed by severe weather,” said Mississippi Emergency Management Agency Chief of Staff Bill Brown. “Our goal is that every citizen in our state will do some of the same things the city of Jackson has done to be better prepared when severe weather is possible in our state.”

StormReady is a nationwide program of the National Weather Service that helps communities protect their citizens during severe weather and encourages communities to take a proactive approach to improving local hazardous weather operations.

To be recognized as StormReady, a community must:

  • Establish a 24-hour warning point and emergency operations center.
  • Have multiple ways to receive severe weather warnings and forecasts and to alert the public.
  • Create a system that monitors weather conditions locally.
  • Promote the importance of public readiness through community seminars.
  • Develop a formal hazardous weather plan, which includes training severe weather spotters and holding emergency exercises.
