Shorewood School District in Milwaukee County, working with Fair Skies Consulting, began a weather risk analysis earlier in 2015. The goal of the plan was to define weather hazards and create an improved process for monitoring and alerting. The result is a comprehensive and customized weather hazard plan that covers the School District, Athletics and Park and Recreation. This promotes safety on school grounds and efficiency through improved notification and mitigation processes in place.
The efforts of Shorewood School District are not going unnoticed. NOAA and the National Weather Service have recognized their efforts and designated the school district StormReady Supporter. The ceremony is 7pm Tuesday, November 24th, 2015 at the school district board meeting. More information about StormReady and the presentation is available here. Shorewood School District is the first school district in Wisconsin to become StormReady and is the 11th in the country.
Fair Skies Consulting specializes in weather hazard planning for school districts, corporations and communities. Fair Skies Consulting is a Weather-Ready Ambassador and promotes NOAA and FEMA best practices in all work. Earlier in 2015 it joined the Southeast Wisconsin Homeland Security Partnership.
