KCEMA to host

Severe Weather- Basic Spotters Training

The Kendall County Emergency Management Agency (KCEMA) is hosting a Severe Weather-Basic spotter training class on Thursday, February 8th at 6:30pm.  The National Weather Service will provide this free training at New Life Church located at 3205 Cannonball Trail, Yorkville.

The National Weather Service’s (NWS) primary mission is to save lives and protect property through the issuance of warning for hazardous weather.  The NWS trains people to identify severe storms and tornadoes and report to local and county emergency management agencies.  The NWS depends on real-time reports from trained spotters to know exactly what is occurring on the ground and under a storm.  This basic training consists of a slide and video program, which teaches spotters about severe storm structure and how to identify cloud features and other environmental clues to identify severe storms and tornadoes.  Communication systems and spotter networks are explained so the spotter knows where to report this information. 

Who should attend:  Interested persons from the Public (including students in 4th grade and up), Emergency Management, Fire, Police, Public works, School Personnel, Bus Drivers, Amateur Radio Operators, Long Term Care Facilities, Plant Safety Personnel, and Anybody interested in the weather

This complimentary class is open to the public with limited seating.  Reserve your seat today by registering at
