Kentucky Association of Mitigation Managers Honored by National Weather Service


Cindy Minter, Campbell County Planning and Zoning Administrator and Carey Johnson, Ky. Division of Water are honored by the National Weather Service for their work in KAMM, promoting a weather-ready nation.

The Kentucky Association of Mitigation Managers (KAMM) promotion of the National Weather Service (NWS) was honored by the NWS for promoting a weather-ready nation with an 2018 Ambassador Recognition.

KAMM was honored for its efforts at its September, 2018 conference, which exemplified its commitment to building a Weather-Ready Nation.

According to the citation, the NWS said of KAMM, “To actively encourage expansion of the Community Collaborative Rain Hail and Snow (CoCoRaHS) network in Kentucky, KAMM purchased 48 of the standard four-inch gauges required of the program, handing them out as speaker gifts and door prizes. Through this effort, KAMM truly served as a force multiplier, strengthening a valuable Weather-Ready Nation partnership.”

The citation went on to say KAMM has worked closely with the NWS offices in Kentucky for 14 years in an effort to mitigate the loss of life and property from flooding, and KAMM’s 2018 promotion is just the latest example of its commitment to the core mission of the NWS, and to its goal of creating a Weather-Ready Nation.
