2017 Lenawee County Sky Warn Training Program

The Lenawee County Office of Emergency Management in cooperation with the National Weather Service and hosted by Adrian College is pleased to offer a Tornado spotter program on Thursday, May 4th beginning at 7:00 PM in the Baer Lecture auditorium inside Jones Hall on the campus of Adrian College. The program will be conducted by a Meteorologist from the White lake/Pontiac office of the National Weather Service.  This program is open to the public and there is no charge to attend, however, registration is required . The program will run about ninety minutes. 

Since the program started in the 1970s, the information provided by SKYWARN® spotters, coupled with Doppler radar technology, improved satellite and other data, has enabled NWS to issue more timely and accurate warnings for tornadoes, severe thunderstorms and flash floods. 

SKYWARN® storm spotters are part of the ranks of citizens who form the Nation's first line of defense against severe weather. There can be no finer reward than to know that their efforts have given communities the precious gift of time--seconds and minutes that can help save lives. 

Who is Eligible? 

NWS encourages anyone with an interest in public service and access to communication, such HAM radio, to join the SKYWARN® program. Volunteers include police and fire personnel, dispatchers, EMS workers, public utility workers and other concerned private citizens. Individuals affiliated with hospitals, schools, churches, nursing homes or who have a responsibility for protecting others are also encouraged to become a spotter.
