SKYWARN AND HAZARDOUS
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.
