Homestead is a StormReady Community
National Weather Service officials recertified Homestead, Florida as a StormReady community in August 2019. The StormReady program helps community leaders and residents better prepare for hazardous weather and flooding. The City of Homestead was first certified as a StormReady community in 2012 for its strong commitment to implement the infrastructure and systems needed to save lives and protect property when severe weather strikes.
To be recognized as StormReady, a community must maintain a 24-hour warning point and emergency operations center; have more than one way to receive National Weather Service warnings and to alert the public; be able to monitor local weather and flood conditions; conduct community preparedness programs; and ensure hazardous weather and flooding are addressed in formal emergency management plans, which include training SKYWARN® weather spotters and holding emergency exercises.
