The class also features visual descriptions of severe weather that spotters may encounter while observing.
This training is recommended for members of local police, fire and EMS departments as well as amateur radio operators and anyone else with an interest in weather. There will be ample time allowed for questions.
This training is sponsored through the cooperation of: Village of Germantown Emergency Management, Washington County Office of Emergency Management, Wisconsin Emergency Management and the National Weather Service.
