The National Hurricane Center conducts a practical program of education and outreach on hazardous tropical weather for the public, educators, students, scientists, businesses, and government agencies. Increased awareness of hazardous tropical weather and its potential impacts are vital to the public and those emergency managers charged with safeguarding lives and property. NHC fulfills this responsibility through direct contact with these groups; formal and informal training; increased data availability; dissemination of scientific and other publications and feedback to effectively adapt to evolving needs.
