If you're caught in a tornado warning, getting inside, to the lowest floor possible, away from windows and in the center of your building is the best place to be. A tornado warning means the time to take action is now to avoid harm to yourself.

Ambassadors also provide outreach content about creating a Weather Ready Nation as well as assist with StormReady® opportunities for communities (Cape May County and Harvey Cedars are a few local examples that are dubbed as StormReady) which arm those places with safety skills needed to save lives and property.

Throughout the year, Martucci will share specialized content from NOAA about how to be weather ready. Martucci also earns a seal from NOAA that will be displayed publicly.
