FREE Storm Spotters Class Minimize
 

If you are a weather enthusiast and are interested in a unique opportunity to serve your community, be sure to reserve your spot in the Henry County Emergency Management Agency’s Storm Spotter Class, to be held in February at the Henry County Emergency Operations Center in McDonough.

In conjunction with the Henry County Emergency Management Agency, the National Weather Service Office in Peachtree City will be offering two Basic Storm Spotter Classes on Tuesday, February 11, 2014 at 2:00 p.m. and 7:00 p.m. The training is free but space is limited.

Weather spotters have served as the “eyes” of the National Weather Service for more than 60 years, assisting in the process to warn their communities of potentially hazardous weather. Although the National Weather Service utilizes cutting edge technology, such as Doppler radar and hi-resolution satellite imagery, nothing has proven more effective than the human eye to observe and report adverse weather.

The training session will focus on preparing individuals to report severe weather, including funnel clouds, tornadoes, hail, damaging winds and flooding rainfall. In addition, the importance of weather safety, when observing and reporting critical weather, will be discussed.

The Henry County Emergency Operations Center is located at 526 Industrial Boulevard in McDonough.  Those interested in attending one of the classes should contact EMA Officer Shelita Broomfield at sbroomfield@co.henry.ga.us  to reserve a space.
