Certification valid through 2022


The National Weather Service (NWS) has recognized the City of St. Augustine as being StormReady® having carefully reviewed criteria that includes nearly 70 individual evaluation points. Evaluation of the city based on that criteria was conducted in September by the StormReady® local advisory board of the NWS in Jacksonville.

Notification of the recognition came in a letter from the NWS to St. Augustine Fire Chief Carlos Aviles who directs the city's emergency operations during weather events such as hurricanes. The recognition is granted for a three year period and this is the second time the city has been named as a Storm Ready® city.

The Storm Ready® program encourages communities to take a new, proactive approach to improving local hazardous weather operations by providing emergency managers with clear-cut guidelines on how to improve their hazardous weather operations.
