FiDi Families was recently invited to the kick off event for the partnership between AccuWeather and the FDNY Foundation. The AccuWeather team is helping spread awareness of both winter cold and fire safety during these chilly months. The AccuWeather team was on hand to share weather tips and to educate children. The Chief Executive Officer, of AccuWeather, Barry Lee Myers was on hand to present a check for $25,000 to the FDNY Foundation, in order to support their efforts in fire safety and winter preparedness. The AccuWeather Ready program is a new year-round weather preparedness program that focuses on keeping people safe and informed. So, we were thrilled to be a part of this new and important initiative.
A number of FDNY dignitaries were on hand to celebrate this new program, including the 35th Chief of Department, James E. Leonard, the highest ranking uniformed member of the FDNY, overseeing 15,000 uniformed Firefighters and EMS personnel.
AccuWeather, the global leader in weather information and digital media, has extended its continued mission to save lives, protect property and help people prosper with its new severe weather preparedness program, AccuWeather Ready. It focuses on keeping consumers safe and informed. It’s an incredible program that is available to all New Yorkers. We attended the kickoff event and it was a chance to educate local school students on how to be ready for winter weather, with both being prepared and informed and with fire safety.
As part of this fantastic initiative, more than 80 local 1st grade students from the Bronx were taken through an interactive demonstration on the top causes of fires and how to learn about winter weather affects the dynamics of the cause for fire.
In today’s world, technology is key and AccuWeather is leading the charge with weather preparedness tips and tools including in-app push notifications when bad weather is approaching, personalized weather preparedness plans and so much more. All of the AccuWeather Ready information is available on the 24/7 AccuWeather Network, AccuWeather.com/Ready and the AccuWeather app.
