Spotter Training 2012

Being a storm spotter not only means dedication, but also training. Each spring the Cleveland office of the National Weather Service trains members of police & fire departments, emergency management officials, amateur radio operators and weather interested citizens on spotting techniques. Typically the training is coordinated by a local group (such as an emergency management agency), and a NWS meteorologist serves as the guest instructor. The goal of the training is not just to recognize tornadoes, but to have some understanding of storm structure, which in turn better prepares the spotter for the extreme and unusual circumstances.

SKYWARN Training is FREE. You will be trained and enrolled in the program.

The 2-HR SKYWARN Training will be held on Thursday April 12, 2012 from 6:30pm-8:30pm @ the Strongsville Recreation Center, 18100 Royalton Rd., Srongsville OH. 44136
