Disneyland is leading the way in storm readiness, being recognized this past week as a StormReady site by the U.S. National Oceanographic and Atmospheric Agency (NOAA). Disneyland has met the key requirements of NOAA's National Weather Service program by creating a system to monitor local weather conditions, establishing a 24-hour center dedicated to weather monitoring and warning, providing more than one way to receive severe weather forecasts and warnings, promoting community awareness of severe weather readiness, and training their community in storm-related emergency preparedness and response. Disneyland will be recognized and praised through signs displayed throughout the park. StormReady standing lasts three years, at which time a new review is required. Disneyland is among 1,070 sites to receive this recognition, 18 of which are in California. Disneyland's high visibilty and community standing will help them to serve as a model for other public sites and businesses.
