National Weather Service Spotter Training Flyer 2015

Each year, approximately 300 community members gather to learn the ins and outs of severe weather hazards and what they can do to help keep our community safe.  In the past, this class has attracted a number of community leaders, public officials, and news stations from all over Northern Illinois and Eastern Iowa.

The purpose of this class is to educate our community of the dangers of severe weather, leaving them with an understanding of the general structure and movement of storms. We rely heavily on many of these individuals as volunteers during severe weather events in which their training provides them with the knowledge and ability to understand what is in front of them. When each second matters, being able to properly identify the features of an impending storm can mean everything to our communities.

WHEN:
Thursday, March 12, 2015 from 6:30 - 8:30 pm.  
Registration will begin at 6:00 pm.

WHERE:  
Highland Community College
Building H, Room 201
2998 W. Pearl City Road
Freeport, IL 61032

National Weather Service Weather Spotter training is FREE, open to the public, and lasts approximately two (2) hours.

There will be three(3) training sessions regarding how to manage highway incidents on March 28th and 29th.  This training brings together all agencies/persons who are most often the first on the scene of an incident (fire, accident, emergency road closure, etc.) into one training where we all can learn the laws, responsibilities and concerns of other agencies.  Highway Incident Management Training was developed by the State of Illinois and has been adopted nationwide.

At this time, this is the only scheduled training for Highway Incident Management Training in Northwest Illinois . This class is FREE and you must register by March 26 to attend.
