WEATHER SPOTTER COURSES

Walworth County Sheriff Kurt Picknell and Emergency Management Director Lt. John Ennis

announce the Weather Spotter Courses for Walworth County. 

Each year in preparation for the “Storm Season” the National Weather Service and

Wisconsin Emergency Management team up with local emergency managers and local partners

to present storm spotter classes.  The goal of these classes is to inform the public

on what to watch for and how to stay safe in the event of a tornado or major storm. 

Also of great importance is how to receive the most current and up to date information for

your area.  We all know that storm sirens sound for tornados, but did you know that not

all areas have storm sirens.  Depending on the wind or if you are indoors you may not be

able to hear the siren.  The best source of weather information is a weather radio. 

This provides detailed and timely information for your area.  Once you receive this alert

on the weather radio you can tune into your local TV or radio station and continue

to receive up to the minute information on storms in your area.

 

Attending a storm spotter class will help you understand the significance of storm warnings

and provide you with information on how to Stay Safe during a storm.

 

If you are able to attend a storm spotter session,

bring a friend or bring the kids and learn how

to “Stay Alert and Stay Alive.”

Three Classes are offered in Walworth County during April:

April 10th 1:00PM, Delavan Fire Department

811 Ann Street, Delavan WI

April 13th 6:30PM, Lake Geneva City Hall

626 Geneva Street, Lake Geneva WI

April 19th 6:30PM, Sharon Fire Department

182 Park Ave, Sharon WI

No pre-registration is required.


The state will conduct a mock tornado drill on Thursday April 20, 2017.  

 

On Thursday, April 20, 2017, two statewide tornado drills are planned.

A mock tornado watch will be issued statewide by the NWS at 1:00 pm.

A mock tornado warning will follow at 1:45 pm with the drill ending at 2:00 pm.

The mock alerts will be issued on NOAA Weather Radios, and your local TV and radio stations.

  Many communities will sound their tornado sirens at 1:45PM.  An evening drill is scheduled

on the same day with a mock tornado warning to take place at 6:45 pm. 

This gives families and workers an opportunity to practice their severe weather plans

at Home or work.  The tornado drill will take place even if the sky is cloudy, dark and or rainy.

If actual severe storms are expected in the state on Thursday, the tornado drills will be

postponed until Friday, April 21 at the same times.  If severe storms are possible Friday,

the drills will be cancelled. Any changes will be issued to local media as well as posted

on the Ready Wisconsin website at http://readywisconsin.wi.gov.

 

More information can be found on the above website or on the Walworth County

Emergency Management Website listed here: http://www.co.walworth.wi.us/Sheriffs%20Office/Emergency%20Management/default.aspx.

 

Included are brochures that include important information on items related to storms,

including lightning, myths and truths about tornados, work and school safety,

NOAA weather radios, flooding and flash flooding family disaster planning

and the difference between watches and warnings.

Motor vehicle crashes are the No. 1 killer of kids.


Why? In many cases, children are either not properly buckled into their safety

seats or parents don’t realize that a booster seat

is vital to ensuring children fit

safely in their vehicle’s seat belt.

Don’t take a chance.

Have your child’s safety seat inspected!
