Winter Preparedness Week - Emergency Management Website Not To Be Missed from NOAA's NWS

Thank you to Fairfax County, Virginia, and the American Red Cross for these useful resources.

And now that we are prepared, perfect timing for our first snow of the season.

The NWS Baltimore/Washington Emergency Manager's Page is a public website that is worth checking out.

The website includes current hazards, hazard outlooks, storm predictions, forecasts, warnings, advisories, and several different map views. Basically, this webpage puts many different weather resources on a single webpage.

If you are not in the National Capital Region, then contact your local NWS Offices and Centers to see if they also have an "Emergency Managers" webpage.
