An Advisory Board of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration & National Weather Service recently re-certified St. Charles as a StormReady Community. The designation is granted every three years to communities that have met or exceeded requirements for severe weather preparation. The City of St. Charles has been a certified StormReady Community since 2014.
“Since earning our StormReady designation, we have been commended for our progressive storm preparedness measures,” said St. Charles Emergency Preparedness Coordinator Emily Kies. “We continue to take pride in this designation, and residents can be confident that when severe weather strikes, the City is ready to provide sufficient information alerts and enact a full emergency response if needed.”
