Collin County Skywarn and Hazardous Weather Conference 2010

COLLIN COUNTY
SKYWARN AND HAZARDOUS
WEATHER CONFERENCE

Saturday January 23, 2010
Spotter training is conducted annually by the National Weather Service.
The conference is free and open to the public; no pre-registration required.
Who are SKYWARN storm spotters?
Amateur radio operators make up the backbone of the SKYWARN spotter network. In some communities and counties, law enforcement and fire officials serve effectively as storm spotters. Public utilities workers, electric and telephone crews, and city/county employees may also serve as storm spotters, along with interested members of the general public. This is an excellent opportunity to have your law enforcement, fire, dispatchers, city/county workers, Community Emergency Response Teams, and interested citizens trained in how to spot severe weather in your community.

    Wow, interesting, I’m hard of hearing, and I’m a part of the Skywarn community. It makes me wonder if any deaf or hard of hearing people have attended that conference. If I have every stayed in Texas, I would love to attend that conference.
