SKYWARN Weather Spotter Training

Our Scott County EMA will be sponsoring a SKYWARN weather spotter training and refresher course. There will be a more formal sign up process on the National Weather Service site and the link will be posted here. Please note you will NOT get a conformation email at the present time as this is an RSVP only. Once you register on the NWS site (when it’s available) you will get a confirmation then.

National Weather Service encourages anyone with an interest in public service to join the SKYWARN® program. Volunteers include police and fire personnel, dispatchers, EMS workers, public utility workers and other concerned private citizens. Individuals affiliated with hospitals, schools, churches and nursing homes or who have a responsibility for protecting others are encouraged to become a spotter.

Training is free and typically lasts about 2 hours. You’ll learn:

  • Basics of thunderstorm development
  • Fundamentals of storm structure
  • Identifying potential severe weather features
  • Information to report
  • How to report information
