Shreveport Station Becomes Weather Ready Nation Ambassador
KTAL/Channel 6/Shreveport has been designated by the National Weather Service as Weather Ready Nation Ambassador. The NWS office in Shreveport says KTAL is the first station in Louisiana to become a Weather Ready Nation Ambassador. The NWS website says the goal of the National Weather Service's Weather-Ready Nation initiative is increasing the nation's weather-readiness so that the country will be better prepared to protect, mitigate, and respond to and recover from weather-related disasters.
The Weather-Ready Nation Ambassador initiative is an effort to formally recognize NOAA partners who are improving the nation's readiness against extreme weather, water, and climate events. As a Weather-Ready Nation Ambassador, the Bossier Parish Library will work with the National Weather Service to strengthen the area's resilience against extreme weather by taking a leadership role in educating the public on weather hazards and promoting weather awareness activities in the community.
