This class is an official offering of the National Weather Service.
This class will equip you to recognize dangerous weather patterns, and respond more proactively to weather changes. This knowledge can save your life in the outdoors. The class also equips you to provide reports to the National Weather Service of severe weather observations, as you need to know what to say, and to whom to say it, to provide reports that may save lives and even whole communities. You will also learn the proper methods for sheltering against extreme weather, as there are misconceptions about what is safe and what is not safe.
This is really two classes. The basic class is in the morning (8:30-Noon). The advanced class in the afternoon, (1pm - 4:30pm). Get there early to get a seat, this is a well-attended event!
Lunch we'll convene at Cousins BBQ. Across the street and just a little south.
You definitely want to get there early to get parking and a good place to sit. You sign in as you enter, and will receive a training certificate from the NWS.
If you cannot make it to this class, maybe make it to one of them listed on this schedule:
