Dawson County is once again being recognized as a National Weather Service StormReady community. A nationwide preparedness program that uses a grassroots initiative to help communities develop plans to handle severe weather, StormReady provides emergency managers with clear-cut guidelines designed to improve local hazardous weather operations. Dawson County Emergency Services Chief Lanier Swafford said he is proud the county has received the designation for four consecutive three-year cycles.
