WEATHER SPOTTER CLASS
March 14, 2018 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
The National Weather Service-Tulsa will be conducting Storm Spotter Training on March 14th 2018 at 7PM. Training will be located in the Walmart Auditorium at the Northwest Arkansas Community College in Bentonville. The NWS will train members of police & fire departments, emergency management officials, local news outlets, and amateur radio operators on spotting techniques. 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. Other topics covered include an update on the latest NWS technology and procedures, ideas for organizing/coordinating spotter groups, and important safety considerations.
