Verification Visit(s)

The StormReady Chairperson will assemble a verification team of at least two members to visit a StormReady and/or TsunamiReady applicant. During the verification visit, each member of the verification team will complete and sign a Site Visit Summary.

During the visit, the team will review the applicant's hazardous weather plan. This review may require the applicant to explain procedures to ensure that the content meets StormReady guidelines. The applicant does need to submit a full copy of the Hazardous Weather Plan to the StormReady Advisory Board, however, the verification team may request a copy for offsite review.

After the site visit, the verification team will forward to the Local Advisory Board its Site Visit Summaries and additional comments or documentation deemed pertinent.

Who Conducts the Verification Visit?

The verification team must at least include one NWS person and one emergency manager. StormReady verification team members should be StormReady Advisory Board members or other individuals deemed qualified to make an assessment by the Local StormReady Advisory Board.
