Our annual storm spotter training, Storm Alert Xtreme, is coming to the BJCC this Saturday, November 12!
Our associate Brian Peters, who has trained over 6,000 Alabama storm spotters during his days with the National Weather Service, will be doing the training as usual. We ask all existing Skywatchers to attend for their annual “re-training”, and anyone that wants to join the team needs to attend as well.
This is totally free, and there is no need to register. We are aware that with the generational tornado outbreak of April 27, we figure we will easily top our record crowd last year, but we will make room for everyone. And, a special thanks to the Birmingham Automobile Dealers Association, who will allow you free entrance into the Alabama International Auto Show after our training (it is going on at the same time at the BJCC).
Chris Novy from Oklahoma City will be in town for a special session on spotter safety. We promise the best training session in the nation… it will run from 9:00 a.m. until 3:00 p.m.
Be sure and pass the word around… we only do this one a year. See you Saturday November 12 at the BJCC!
