Fair Skies Consulting is a 2022 National Weather Service WeatherReady Nation Ambassador of Excellence. National Weather Service (NWS) Forecast Offices across the United States nominate a small group of WeatherReady Ambassadors annually. The offices then vote on the nominations. The successful nominations are Weather Ready Nation Ambassadors of Excellence. Fair Skies Consulting is one of less than 55 groups identified as an Ambassador of Excellence in 2022. Ambassadors of Excellence routinely go above and beyond the basic expectations of a WeatherReady Nation Ambassador.
The NWS notes “recruiting and assisting of schools to become StormReady Supporters in collaboration with NWS Milwaukee“. “From making school officials aware of the requirements to walking through their safety plans, you are undoubtedly helping to save lives”.
Ambassadors of Excellence:
- Inspire others to act and become ready, responsive and resilient
- Create innovative ways to engage their community
- Form unique collaborations with National Ocean and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) and other ambassador organizations
- Embrace building “a WeatherReady Nation for All” by addressing vulnerable populations’ needs
