The Victoria Office of Emergency Management is hosting the National Weather Service-Corpus Christi in February for a Skywarn Storm Spotter training as part of the office’s 2020 training series.

Training will be from 5:30-7 p.m. Feb. 5 at the Victoria Office of Emergency Management, 205 N. Bridge St., Suite B101.

The National Weather Service encourages anyone with an interest in public service to join the Skywarn program, according to a memo from the Victoria Office of Emergency Management. The training will teach participants about the basics of thunderstorm development, fundamentals of storm structure, identifying potential severe weather features, basic severe weather safety and more.

Volunteers include police and fire personnel, dispatchers, EMS workers, public utility workers and other concerned private citizens.

People affiliated with hospitals, schools, churches and nursing homes or who have a responsibility for protecting others are encouraged to become a spotter.
