Skywarn Training

The Heart of Texas Ham Operators Group will once again be hosting the National Weather Service (NWS) of San Angelo as they provide the annual Skywarn training for McCulloch County. Anyone with an interest in public service and/or severe weather is encouraged to participate in the Skywarn program. Volunteers come from various backgrounds, including: fire fighters, law enforcement, public utility workers, and HAM radio operators. Individuals affiliated with hospitals, schools, churches, nursing homes or who have a responsibility for protecting others are also encouraged to become a spotter. However, these training sessions are not limited to these individuals. Skywarn may be for you if you have ever had an interest in severe weather and would like to learn more about storm structure, the identification of severe weather features, or what to do when severe weather strikes. This year, the training for McCulloch County will be on Tuesday, February 27th at the VFW Hall located on Memory Lane beginning at 6:30PM.
