The Alamodome is pleased to announce that through continued efforts to ensure patron safety in the face of severe weather, the facility has been awarded the designation of being "StormReady®" and "Weather-Ready Nation Ambassadors™" by National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration's (NOAA) National Weather Service.

The designation recognizes the Alamodome for its preparedness to handle all types of severe and potentially life-threatening weather situations through communications infrastructures, community outreach and hazardous weather training. 

"We are grateful to the National Weather Service for providing us with this distinction," said Nick Langella, Alamodome General Manager. The Alamodome takes weather very seriously. This recognition clearly shows our commitment to emergency preparedness. We are proud to share NOAA's vision of building a Weather-Ready Nation."

The nationwide community preparedness program uses a grassroots approach to help communities develop plans to handle local severe weather and flooding threats. The program is voluntary and provides communities with clear-cut advice from local National Weather Service forecast offices and state and local emergency managers.

The National Weather Service's StormReady program is a partnership with emergency management that helps reduce risk and increases community resilience to hazards.
