Media Release On Thursday, May 1, 2014 the Jefferson County Office of Fire and Emergency Management in conjunction with the National Weather Service will be conducting a “SKY WARN Storm Spotter Training”. This will be at the Glen Park Fire Station, 630 Main St in Glen Park, NY. This class is absolutely free and will begin at 7:00 pm and will last approximately 2 hours. The National Weather Service promotes and presents this program through the local National Weather Office to train the public to spot and report weather events as they are happening. The National Weather Service uses the data collected by these spotters to make predictions and activate alerts such as watches and warnings. The organization of spotters and the distribution of warning information may lie with the National Weather Service or with an emergency management agency within the community. This agency could be a police or fire department, or often is an emergency management/service group (what people might still think of as a civil defense group). This is a great training opportunity from the National Weather Service and again is FREE of charge. A web page has been organized for this program: Please contact the Jefferson County Office of Fire and Emergency Management at 315-786-2654 to sign up. Walk-Ins are also welcome.
