ABOUT TAKE WINTER BY STORM
Every year we are faced with natural disasters – our unforgiving winter weather storms – potentially costing thousands of dollars in property damage, threatening your safety, and causing great discomfort. But we don't have to go it alone.
TAKE WINTER BY STORM helps citizens and businesses with preparedness tips and checklists to get prepared for winter weather hazards by motivating people to take concrete actions to be better prepared - helping you save money, remain safe, and instill confidence during winter storms.
By pooling limited public-private resources, Take Winter By Storm participants are able to leverage dollars, in-kind contributions and cross-promotional opportunities to message critical winter weather preparedness actions to increase preparedness behaviors.
TAKE WINTER BY STORM is a collaborative, public-private effort between King County, the City of Seattle, and their utilities and emergency management offices - Seattle Public Utilities, Seattle City Light and Seattle Department of Transportation - State Farm, National Weather Service/NOAA, and other local retailers - which represent Washington state’s largest counties and city emergency management offices and utilities, the leading insurer of homes, property and automobiles, national weather forecasters, first responders during disaster occurrences, and local businesses. These organizations have joined forces in this major multi-media public awareness program to raise community awareness of the hazards of stormy weather and help protect lives and property.
