Anyone who has access to communication devices such as a HAM radio and has an interest in public service is encouraged to participate. The class is especially beneficial to police and fire personnel, dispatchers, EMS workers, public utility workers and concerned citizens who have a responsibility for protecting others particularly in a hospital, school, church, or nursing home setting.
This class will include:
• Basics of thunderstorms development
• Fundamentals of storm structures
• Identifying potential severe weather features
• Information to report
• How to report information
• Basic severe weather safety
A class will be held Oct. 11 at the Fall Branch Volunteer Fire Dept., 106 Ruritan Road, Fall Branch; and Oct. 18 at the South Central School, 2955 Highway 107, Chuckey.
Both classes will be held from 6 to 9 p.m. and seating is limited. To register or for more information, call Chad Bruckman at 434- 6082.
