SKYWARN Training Program April 21

at Farmington Hills City Hall

 

The Farmington Hills/Farmington Emergency Preparedness Commission (EPC) will present a free SKYWARN training program on Tuesday, April 21 from 7 to 8:30 p.m. in the Council Chambers at Farmington Hills City Hall, located at 31555 Eleven Mile Road at the corner of Orchard Lake Road.

 

SKYWARN training sessions teach participants how to accurately observe weather phenomena and report important information.  The class covers basic weather safety, significant cloud features, and thunderstorm development.  Participants will learn about tornadoes, floods, hail, wind, and the associated damage from severe weather.

 

Despite new technological advances in predicting severe weather, the trained spotter remains essential to the National Weather Service (NWS) warning process.  Trained SKYWARN spotters in the field can help the NWS provide better, more accurate information to the public during a severe weather event.

 

Advance registration is required.  Go to www.oakgov.com/homelandsecurity and click on the SKYWARN logo to register online or call 248-858-5300.

 

The SKYWARN training program is hosted by the EPC, Oakland County, and Warning Coordination Meteorologist Richard Pollman of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s Detroit Weather Forecast Office in White Lake, Michigan.
