In this report, you’ll learn:

An independent research company, on behalf of Motorola Solutions, surveyed 1,000 members of the public about severe weather and natural disaster preparedness.
Despite the public’s increasing concern about severe weather and natural disasters, a little more than one-third of those surveyed feel very or extremely prepared to handle these events. 
Some respondents said that they experienced a new-to-them natural disaster in the past two years.
An overwhelming majority (93%) of respondents say emergency responders are somewhat prepared, prepared or extremely prepared to help them/their communities in the event of a natural disaster.
When it comes to severe weather events, SMS/text messages are the top pick for both preferred communication method and single source of truth.
Everyone plays a role in safety. The good news is residents are taking proactive steps to prepare for weather events including sharing information about themselves or loved ones with 9-1-1.
