Members of the Kershaw County Amateur Radio Club (KCARC) are participating as Weather-Ready Nation (WRN) ambassadors during a weeklong #SafePlaceSelfie campaign this week with the National Weather Service (NWS).

The campaign started Monday and runs through Thursday. The NWS, KCARC and other WRN ambassadors, along with government agencies and individuals across the country, are highlighting the No. 1 thing people can do when extreme weather threatens: finding a safe place.

Businesses are being asked to engage their employees. The idea is for individuals or groups post “selfies” of themselves in their extreme weather safe place and tag others by asking “Where is your safe place from extreme weather” and using the hashtag #SafePlaceSelfie.

There will also be a TweetChat on Thursday at 1 p.m. to learn more about some of nuances in finding safe places to go to when extreme weather hits.

For more information, contact the KCARC by email at
