Hinds County earns StormReady Designation

Pearl – Hinds County will receive the state’s 47th StormReady designation Monday at the Hinds County Board of Supervisor’s regular meeting. The meeting will begin at 9 a.m. in the Hinds County Chancery Courthouse Boardroom, 316 S. President St. in Jackson.

“Our goal is to protect the citizens and visitors of Hinds County,” said Hinds County Emergency Management Director Jimmie Lewis. “The StormReady program is an excellent way to ensure the public gets the information it needs during a weather emergency. Everyone in the county can be proud of this accomplishment. The Emergency Management staff worked hard to make this a success.”

Mississippi has 24 counties, 16 communities, four state universities and three government sites designated as StormReady in Mississippi.

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.

“One of the things that we can count on in our state is severe weather,” said Mississippi Emergency Management Director Robert Latham. “It is my goal that every community in the state will be StormReady. I hope individuals, families and businesses will follow the example set by Hinds County and others and prepare now for the next round of severe weather.”

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.
