Storm Spotter Training For Area Residents Is March 9
Years ago, there was a song made for those who wanted to be a cowboy.
But what about those who want to be a storm spotter?
Luckily, there will be a storm spotter training event hosted next month by Jefferson/Saline/Gage Emergency Management -- and anyone interested is invited to attend.
The storm spotter training will be held in Beatrice on March 9 at 7 p.m. at the Homestead National Monument education center (8523 West State Highway 4, Beatrice, Neb.).
The training will be conducted by National Weather Service (NWS) meteorologists.
It should be noted that trained spotters will not be recognized in Saline, Jefferson or Gage counties or by the NWS unless you attend a session conducted by a NWS expert. It is recommended that spotters attend a session every two years to keep up on any changes.
For questions, call John McKee at (402) 729-3602 or (402) 821-3010.
Now go be that eye in the sky.
