NEMA Weather Mission and Values
Weather Group Volunteer Mission Statement
The mission of NEMA, through the Weather Group, during severe weather situations is to monitor the weather situation during times of potentially damaging weather and provide weather status information to Public Safety operations in Naperville.
The Weather Group will provide training to other response organizations in severe weather background and severe weather operations. This training will primarily be in the area of weather operations center activities. Also, weather safety training will be provided to the local community through the office of the Naperville Emergency Preparedness Manager.
Weather Group Volunteer Values Statement
The NEMA Weather Group will develop and document procedures that will establish operational responses to severe weather within guidelines approved by the Fire Department. NEMA Weather Group personnel will maintain current certification and training in weather related areas. NEMA weather operations personnel will also maintain the "radio room" in the city EOC in a state of constant readiness to be able to respond in a timely manner to weather situations through out the year.
