CANWARN Training for 2015
CANWARN volunteers come from all walks of life; amateur radio operators, the Canadian Red Cross, first responders, municipal/provincial/federal government employees, teachers and many others. Environment Canada holds a series of training sessions across the province each spring to refresh the knowledge of existing volunteers and to welcome new volunteers to the program. The training normally lasts about 2 1/2 hours and there is no cost to attend. The training covers the basics of thunderstorm formation, what differentiates a severe from a non-severe thunderstorm, the types of damage severe thunderstorms can produce, what to watch for in the sky, what to report to the Storm Prediction Centre and a series of safety tips.
For more information on the program, please contact Warning Preparedness Meteorologist Geoff Coulson at firstname.lastname@example.org
... Looking forward to seeing everyone in the southwest in the coming week and at the other venues in the weeks to come.
