MCARES accepted into NOAA initiative

The Muscatine County Amateur Radio Emergency Service has been welcomed to the NOAA Weather-Ready Nation Ambassador™ initiative. Our organization has been accepted as a NOAA Weather-Ready Nation Ambassador.

The Weather-Ready Nation Ambassador initiative is an effort to formally recognize NOAA partners who are improving the nation’s readiness against extreme weather, water, and climate events. As a Weather-Ready Nation Ambassador, your organization is committing to work with NOAA and other Ambassadors to strengthen national resilience against extreme weather.

What’s Next

A NOAA point of contact will reach out to the ARES EC shortly to answer questions we may have and explore collaboration opportunities.
