The National Weather Service (NWS) has announces plans for National Severe Weather Preparedness Week, "Be a Force of Nature," which takes place March 3-9, 2013. NWS and FEMA will partner again at the local level in this year's campaign, by holding workshops and storm spotter training, as well as in utilizing social media outreach to incorporate messaging from the national campaign into local preparedness efforts. NWS has developed a new, improved toolkit for colleagues, partners and stakeholders to use during the week and throughout severe weather season. The toolkit (in English and Spanish) includes: social media examples; blog post template; news release template; op-ed template; talking points; PowerPoint presentation; and posters/graphics.
