Due to the historic and inclement weather of 2011 NOAA as well as several other environmental centered organizations plan to create a more “Weather-Ready Nation” based out of Washington D.C. The weather response systems being put into place focus on emergency response, ecological forecasting and enhanced support to officials who make public health and safety decisions when extreme weather sets in. The overall theme of this operation, is to keep the general public informed if anything were to happen. I feel that these steps should be taken up all across the nation to keep Americans safe from natural disasters. I am glad to see that people have began to take action for the past devastating weather events.
