February: Severe Weather Awareness


Welcome to our month-by-month Disaster Readiness Calendar!


Why should organizations care about severe wind and tornado risk?

Most of the United States is at some risk for severe wind and tornadoes. In fact, Americans live in the most severe weather-prone country on Earth.

That's why it's important that your public garden understands the potential impacts of severe weather events like tornados, hurricanes, and flooding on your organization. 

Get Storm Ready! 

Your community is always vulnerable to Mother Nature's wrath. But you can take the necessary steps to feel more secure and confident in how you can weather these storms.

You can use the Ready Business Program -- Severe Wind/Tornado Toolkit to help you protect employees, customers, and helping your business survival and longevity as a whole. 

After you have identified the potential severe wind and tornado risks, and determined the possible impacts on your business or organization, create a Preparedness and Mitigation Project Plan and decide which solutions you will use to reduce risks. The Preparedness and Mitigation Project Plan will support the business continuity planning and readiness process, and bring you one step closer to recognition as a Ready Business.

In February, don't let storms impact your business and garden plans. Preparedness is key to fighting unexpected and severe storms!
