Rockford's hospitals and public schools were recognized recently for being StormReady Supporters, a designation awarded by the National Weather Service, according to a Rockford Register Star article.

The StormReady Supporter program, developed in cooperation with state and local emergency management agencies, recognizes businesses, schools, hospitals, large venues and other nongovernment entities that establish severe weather safety plans and take part and promote severe weather safety awareness activities.
