Storm Ready County

Tony Merriman from the Flagstaff Office of the National Weather Service came before the Yavapai County Board of Supervisors this morning to inform them that Yavapai County had been awarded the Storm Ready Designation.

Mr. Merriman said, "Americans live in the most severe weather-prone country on Earth. Some 98 percent of all Presidentially declared disasters are weather related, leading to around 500 deaths per year and nearly $15 billion in damage. The StormReady program helps arm America's communities with the communication and safety skills needed to save lives and property--before, during and after the event. StormReady helps community leaders, like Yavapai County Emergency Manager Ron Sauntma, strengthen local safety programs."

The sign that was presented to the board will be hung in the Yavapai County Public Works Department and additional signs can be made to placed around the County.

The Census Bureau data collected determines how more than $675 billion of federal funding are spent on infrastructure, programs, and services each year.

Please allow the census interviewers access to your location to knock on the doors of the occupied units at this location, so that they may attempt to speak with the residents of those units. The census interviewers will work efficiently with minimal disruptions to the residents. Each interview will take approximately 10 minutes.

YRMC’s Family Resource Center to Continue its Free Car Seat Program

The Family Resource Center at Yavapai Regional Medical Center will continue its partnership with the Governor’s Office of Highway Safety to offer a free car seat safety program to families in Yavapai County.

For over 30 years, YRMC’s Family Resource Center has served families in the Quad City area, working to keep children safe and empowering parents with the knowledge, tools, and resources to build strong parent-child relationships and to give children the best start to life possible! 

A renewed grant from the Governor’s Office of Highway Safety in the amount of $13,923 will support the Family Resource Center team as they support families in an additional way - offering car seat safety checks, distributing seats free of charge when needed, and providing supporting education to help keep children safe inside their family’s vehicles. During the 2019 fiscal year, over 96% of the seats checked via this program arrived in an unsafe configuration, greatly increasing the child’s risk of injury or death in the event of a car accident.

For more information or to schedule an appointment, please call the Family Resource Center at (928) 771-5651.
