The designations recognize Lebanon Premium Outlets for its preparedness to handle all types of severe and potentially life-threatening weather situations through communications infrastructures, community outreach and hazardous weather training. Simon Property Group, parent company of the local outlet store, is the first REIT to achieve this status at all of its locations nationwide.
“We are grateful to the National Weather Service for providing us with this distinction,” said Desiree Mosiman, general manager at Lebanon Premium Outlets. “Our center plays a key role in the community, and the safety and security of area residents and visitors is of utmost importance. Leading by example, our hope is that other organizations that serve as community gathering places will follow suit.”
“Simon Property Group proactively shares NOAA’s vision of building a Weather-Ready Nation,” said Chris Maier, national warning coordination meteorologist of the National Weather Service. “We welcome Lebanon Premium Outlets as a StormReady and Weather-Ready Nation Ambassador partner. Their comprehensive emergency management and security program helps their tenants and patrons stay ready, responsive and resilient to extreme weather events.”
The National Weather Service’s StormReady program is a partnership with emergency management that helps reduce risk and increases community resilience to hazards. For more information, visit stormready.noaa.gov.
