Pettis County Emergency Management Agency Providing Storm Spotter Training in Sedalia

The Pettis County EMA is hosting an evening of Storm Spotter Training. Training is provided by the National Weather Service on Feb. 20 at 7:00 p.m. at the First United Methodist Church, 1701 West 32nd St.

Storm spotting is a specific type of weather spotting in which people actively maintain a visual watch of the development and progression of specific weather events while actively relaying important information to their respective local agency. It’s important here in our area since we have so many different kinds of storms here, and it’s also important that our spotters are well trained.

The Pettis County EMA doesn’t want to put anyone in danger, and it doesn’t want incorrect information, and that’s why these storm spotter training sessions are so important. Technological advances such as the Internet, weather radio, pagers, and cell phones have made spotter activation quick and efficient; however, the basic goal of spotting has remained relatively unchanged to this day.

If you feel like you’d be of service to the EMA or if you want to learn the process, attend this training session on Thursday. Training is open to the public.  For more information, contact the Sedalia Pettis County EMA at 827-4800 ex 1, email or find them on Facebook.

Spottingly yours,
