Saginaw Texas - A StormReady Community!

Saginaw_2021

The City of Saginaw has been recognized by the National Weather Service as a StormReady Community. The national community preparedness program, which launched in Oklahoma in 1999, uses a grassroots approach to help communities develop plans to handle local severe weather and flooding threats.

To be recognized as StormReady, a community must establish a 24-hour warning point and emergency operations center; have more than one way to receive severe weather forecasts and warnings and to alert the public; create a system that monitors local weather conditions; promote the importance of public readiness through community seminars; develop a formal hazardous weather plan, which includes training severe weather spotters and holding emergency exercises, and more.

Congratulations to Saginaw Emergency Management Coordinator Joe Laster and the Saginaw Fire Department for all their hard work.
