You can have a hand at building a WeatherReady Nation by interacting with 200 Boy and Girl Scouts as they learn about weather and emergency management. Participating scouts (ages 10–17) will have the opportunity to earn the new Weather-Ready Nation Patch, as well as their respective Weather Merit Badges in full. During this program, scouts will learn how to interpret symbols on a weather map, discover the difference between different weather alerts and how the public receives them, discuss what items need to be in an emergency kit, determine ways families and communities can be prepared in the event of a weather emergency, and much more. AMS is in need of several volunteers to lead or assist with the instructional sessions. Click http://wrnscoutevent.wix.com/wrnscoutevent for more information and to become a volunteer!
