The Rutland Regional Dispatch is recognized by NOAA as a Weather-Ready Nation Ambassador. The Weather-Ready Nation Ambassador initiative is an effort to formally recognize NOAA partners who are improving the nation’s readiness against extreme weather, water, and climate events. As a Weather-Ready Nation Ambassador, we are committing to work with NOAA and other Ambassadors to strengthen national resilience against extreme weather.


The Rutland Regional Dispatch provides Severe Weather Alerts and Urgent life Safety Alerts via the department's RAVE ALERT system. To receive these alerts Click Here

Each year, people in this country are killed or seriously injured by all types of extreme weather, despite advance warning. We want to motivate individuals and communities to take actions that will prepare them in the event of a weather disaster and to share their preparedness steps with others. These actions can save lives anywhere - at home, in schools, and in the workplace before tornadoes, hurricanes, and other extreme types of weather strike.

We ask everyone to “Be a Force of Nature” by knowing your risk, taking action and being an example in your community. Please Click Here to find out how you can Be a Force of Nature.
