Spotter Classes

Become certified as a National Weather Service Skywarn Storm Spotter!!  This free class is open to the public, ham radio operators, police, fire, EMS, hospital staff, company emergency managers, etc. Learn how to recognize when a thunderstorm is severe, when funnels and then tornadoes are developing.  A great introduction to severe weather basics for anyone interested in weather.  Those with spotter identification are required to renew their training every two years; so if you did not take training last year then it is time to do so again this year.



The five classes below are offered in the county at different locations and at different times of the month, week and day for your convenience.  The same weather related material will be presented at each session.  Please refer to the National Weather Service schedule on their website for the full schedule in our "County Warning Area."  

ARES/RACES or similar volunteers from within St. Croix County and any neighboring counties. The ham radio material for operating in St. Croix and Pierce Counties will be handled at the end of all classes as needed.  Ham radio ID Cards will be issued at all sessions for ham radio operators, speak to an instructor for more information.
