Public Information Statement

Statement as of 6:00 AM EST on February 06, 2016

This week is severe weather preparedness week in Georgia. Today we will
discuss the Skywarn program.

Skywarn is a program the National Weather Service uses to improve
severe storm warnings. Trained volunteers serve as storm spotters.
These spotters pass on vital ground truth information to forecasters
during severe weather events. They are the eyes and ears not only
for forecasters... but for the community as a whole.

Skywarn volunteers come from all walks of life... and generally have
two things in common... an interest in weather and an interest in
serving their community. Certain organizations often involved in
Skywarn include:

Emergency management... law enforcement... Fire Department and Rescue
squads... and amateur radio groups

Any organization or person can become a Skywarn spotter... but they
must first complete the necessary training from the National Weather
Service. These training classes are offered as requested during the
period of January to March 15th. Each class will be done in a
grouping of 1 to 4 counties. Anyone interested in attending a
spotter training class is asked to contact their counties emergency
management office to get a schedule of upcoming classes.
Sometimes... depending on demand... a second season of classes is
offered between September and November.
