Join us for the SKYWARN® storm spotter class sponsored by KAMM! 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 your efforts gave a community the precious gift of time--seconds and minutes that can help save lives.
NWS encourages anyone with an interest in public service to attend the class. Storm spotter 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.
