Lima Campus earns StormReady recognition

A meteorologist from the National Weather Service in Northern Indiana will be at the Lima Campus at 10 a.m., Thur., Sept. 19, 2019, in the Science Building Lobby to recognize The Ohio State University at Lima and Rhodes State College as StormReady. 

Meteorologist-In-Charge Mark Frazier will present an official certificate and signage to Ohio State Police Sergeant Tony Swygart and other officials from Ohio State and Rhodes State during the ceremony.

According to the National Weather Service, more than 90% of all presidentially declared disasters are weather related, leading to around 500 deaths and more than $23 billion in damage each year. The voluntary StormReady program is designed to help Americans guard against the ravages of severe weather through a partnership between the National Weather Service and emergency management programs. 
StormReady provides jurisdictions with a standard level of preparedness for hazardous weather and recognizes emergency managers for their hard work. The Lima Campus joins the more than 2,300 counties, communities, universities, tribal nations, commercial enterprises, government offices and military installations that have been recognized as StormReady since the program’s inception in 1999.
