Wehealth is excited to be appointed as a NOAA Weather Ready Nation Ambassador. Weather–Ready Nation is about readying communities for extreme weather, water, and climate events. Wehealth is committed to helping communities be ready, responsive & resilient and the platform is perfectly suited to deliver timely, relevant alerts to the public combined with community-specific resources & recommendations to help everyone respond effectively. The public can install the free Wehealth Notify app and select any of the individual 3000+ local public health departments nationwide. They can opt-in to receive alerts of extreme weather events from the National Weather Service alongside other public health alerts from the CDC and their local public health departments.

The devastating impacts of extreme events like record breaking snowfall, violent tornadoes, destructive hurricanes, widespread flooding, and devastating drought can be reduced by taking advanced action, which is why the Weather–Ready Nation initiative is so important. Building a Weather–Ready Nation requires action from other government agencies at the national, state, and local levels, America’s Weather Industry, emergency managers, researchers, the media, nonprofits, and businesses to reduce the risk of being adversely impacted by extreme weather and water events and increase community resilience (the ability to recover) for future extreme events.

NOAA’s National Weather Service is transforming its operations to help America respond. Offices now provide forecast information in a way that better supports emergency managers, first responders, government officials, businesses and the public make fast, smart decisions to save lives and property and enhance livelihoods. NOAA’s Office of Oceanic and Atmospheric Research and National Environmental Satellite, Data, and Information Service are moving new science and technology into National Weather Service operations that will improve forecasts and ultimately increase weather-readiness.
