 Please join us for a very informative evening being instructed by meteorologists from the Wilmington, Ohio National Weather Service.  Have you wondered what the difference is between a funnel cloud and a wall cloud?  How does hail form?  Or how watches and warnings are issued?  During this 90 minute training, you will learn basic weather principles, how weather radars works, how to report severe weather events, and much more.

 As we all know, severe weather knows no jurisdictional boundaries, county borders, or state lines.  We feel this is an important training event for not only first responders in our communities, but also for the general public.  Therefore anyone and everyone are welcome to attend our training, even if you’re not a resident in one of the sponsoring counties.  This is truly open to all of our friends and neighbors.

 For more information, contact one of the sponsoring Emergency Management Agencies:

 We hope to see you on the evening of March 1st, 2016!
