HACKENSACK, N.J. -- The Shops at Riverside is pleased to announce that, through continued efforts to increase shopper safety in the face of severe weather, it has been awarded the designations of being "StormReady" and "Weather-Ready Nation Ambassadors" by National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration's National Weather Service.

The designations recognize the shopping center for its preparedness to handle all types of severe and potentially life-threatening weather situations through communications infrastructures, community outreach and hazardous weather training.

"We are grateful to the National Weather Service for providing us with this distinction," said Lisa Polino, director of marketing and business development at The Shops at Riverside. "Our center plays a key role in the Hackensack 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 Weather Service national warning coordination meteorologist. "We welcome The Shops at Riverside 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 StormReady program is a partnership with emergency management that helps reduce risk and increases community resilience to hazards. For more information, visit its website.
