March 30 – SkyWarn Training in Clarkston

March 30 – SkyWarn Training in Clarkston

Skywarn is an effort to save lives during severe weather emergencies by expanding networks of spotters and by encouraging the widest possible participation in tornado warning programs. Skywarn Weather Spotters provide a valuable service to the National Weather Service by reporting storm damage, precipitation and other observed weather phenomena. There is no way to stop tornadoes, and not all tornadoes show up on radar, but they can be seen. Lives can be saved. Only one instrument can detect a tornado or funnel with complete certainty–the human eye.

Click here for the SKYWARN schedule. Click on Skywarn logo to register. Please use Internet Explorer when registering.

All interested parties (i.e., fire, police, EMS, security, volunteers and citizens) are encouraged to attend.

This program is coordinated by the Oakland County Homeland Security Division.

Become a storm spotter in your own home!

If you are unable to make one of the Skywarn classes this year, there are a couple of alternatives for Skywarn Training. An online Skywarn training is available through the NOAA MetEd web site. Currently there are two courses, each taking about one hour to complete…The Role of the Skywarn Spotter and Skywarn Spotter Convective Basics.
