Weather Spotter Training Offered Free at UTSI
Tim Troutman, Warning Coordination Meteorologist with The National Weather Service, and Franklin County Emergency Management Agency Director Eric Trussell will present a two-hour Weather Spotter training session at UTSI on Feb. 28 at 2 p.m.
The pair will present a video on differentiating the various types of cloud formations, specifically to determine those with the potential for severe weather. The training session will also clarify specific weather conditions pre-eminent to severe weather. This very informative session will teach individuals when to be alert to conditions that could pose a threat, and when normal weather patterns present no cause for alarm.
This training is free and open to the public. Please call Wes McMinn, UTSI’s Safety Officer and Facilities Director, at 393-7313 if you would like to attend.
