(Neb.)-Spotter Training Precedes Severe Weather Awareness Week
(Chadron)-Severe Weather Awareness Week in Nebraska is March 25-29 and is observed to increase awareness of, and response to, severe weather hazards. A statewide tornado drill is scheduled as part of the week on March 27.
Al Berndt, Nebraska Emergency Management Agency assistant director, said Severe Weather Awareness Week is designed to encourage Nebraskans to prepare for severe weather by making a safety plan and reviewing proper safety precautions for protecting their lives.
Severe weather can result in tragic losses that preparation and planning can prevent. In Chadron, people will have an opportunity to become trained in what to look for during severe weather by taking a free spotter training class. It will be offered on Tuesday, March 19, beginning at 6 pm in City Council Chambers at City Hall. There is no pre-registration required, and all are welcome to attend. John Griffith with the National Weather Service in Cheyenne will conduct the free class.
