Storm Spotter Training for the Deaf and Hard of Hearing


Severe weather affects everyone, and on Monday, there’s a special storm spotter training class to help those with hearing impairment learn how to be more weather aware. 

Interpreters and CART services will be provided.

The class will feature tips on how to analyze the weather and keep yourself alert to weather warnings. 

The class is free to attend and also includes a tour of the national weather service offices. 

In addition to severe weather information, attendees will also receive a free weather radio complete with a strobe light feature for a visual alert.

Jennifer Saari, National Weather Service Meteorologist, says, “When you leave our class, you’ll leave with something new, some education.  You’ll leave with that weather radio and strobe lights so you can go home and be even more prepared than when you left.  Especially when we get night time storms, that’s imperative to be safe especially at night.” 

The seminar will be presented Monday starting at 5:30 at the National Weather Service Offices on the UAH campus. 

It is free to attend; however you do need to register ahead of time. Click here for more information.
