Storm spotter training program set for March 18

With the severe weather season closing in, the National Weather Service and local emergency management officials are offering their annual storm spotter training course, Skywarn, to make sure the community is ready for severe weather conditions.

The National Weather Service in partnership with Graham and Young County Emergency Management will be hosting the free severe weather training class from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. on Monday, March 18 at the North Central Texas College auditorium.  

“The point of storm spotter training is just of awareness, you know, to be prepared and planned,” Fire Department Assistant Chief and Emergency Management Coordinator Jim Don Laurent said. “I think people should be educated on the potential that severe weather has and the threat it can bring.”
