Longview ISD has been accepted as a "Weather Ready Nation Ambassador" by the National Weather Service office in Shrevport.

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.

Dennis Williams, LISD Assistant Superintendent of Administrative and Pupil Services, said the district is committing to work with NOAA and other ambassadors to strengthen national resilience against extreme weather.

“East Texas is certainly no stranger to severe weather,” he said. “We've certainly seen our share of disasters and dangerous weather, and personal preparedness is key to saving lives. We’re pleased NOAA recognizes our commitment to promoting preparedness throughout Longview and are proud to serve as a Weather-Ready Nation Ambassador.”

As a Weather-Ready Nation Ambassador, LISD will promote preparedness messages and themes to the public as well as collaborate with NOAA on events and outreach opportunities.
