Severe Weather Spotter Course

Tuesday, March 19, 2019

Spotter training classes cover severe weather hazards including thunderstorms and tornadoes. This includes the general structure and movement of severe thunderstorms, identification of important storm features, and safety concerns. Virtually every community has some form of spotter network. Often, local fire and police personnel are trained to observe and report severe weather, partly due to their extensive radio communication and 24-hour operations. Citizens may also be an active part of the spotter network, some with an avid interest in the weather and many without. Some spotters are amateur radio operators. All classes last about 2 hours. They are free and open to the public. Classes are appropriate for all ages. Ages 10 and up will likely get the most out of the training. Pre-registration is NOT required unless specifically noted for a particular class. Classes are scheduled in collaboration with local emergency management officials.
