Local Severe Weather Safety and Spotter Classes to be Held
April 11, 2019
Green County Emergency Management announces that local severe weather/tornado spotters classes will be held Monday, April 15, 2019. The first class will be at 12:30 p.m., at the Monroe Fire Dept. #1 at 601 W. 17th Street (by Badger State Ethanol) with next class at 6:30 p.m., at New Glarus Fire Department, 218 4th Avenue. Marc Kavinsky, Meteorologist with the National Weather Service, will be instructing the classes.
The classes will be split in two sections; the first hour will focus on severe weather safety and the second hour will focus on what kinds of weather events should be reported, how it is reported, why the National Weather Service needs spotters and much more. Attendees can choose to attend one or both sessions. This a great class to take to prepare yourself for severe weather and learn how to correctly identify a tornado and you do not have to become an “official” tornado spotter. One weather radio will be given away at the end of each class!
These classes, which are free, are open to all first responders as well as the general public. Pre-registration is appreciated by calling Green County Emergency Management at (608) 328-9416.
