NOAA Launches Weather Forecast Equipment Repair Facility in Missouri; Kathryn Sullivan Comments

NOAALogoThe National Weather Service has opened a new weather service equipment repair facility in Missouri that is leased by the General Services Administration.

The 222,000 square-foot building in Grandview will house a national logistics and reconditioning center responsible for the proper function of weather monitoring systems, GSA said Thursday.

“Each and every day, employees at this center handle critical functions that keep the national weather service systems operating,” said Kathryn Sullivan, NOAA administrator.

“Their hard work is advancing NOAA’s efforts to build a weather-ready nation by making sure the tools NOAA forecasters need to issue timely public weather warnings are always working,” Sullivan added.

Engineers and technicians at the center will develop fixes to weather tracking systems and produce repair parts for local forecasting stations throughout the country.
