Public Service Announcement

As a “Certified Emergency Response Team” Member here in Kirkland, I was invited to attend the class on being a “weather spotter”.

Not my cup of tea, but thought some of you might be interested.


Site: Redmond Public Safety Bldg – Redmond, Wa
(8701 160th Ave NE – see map below)
Date: Monday, November 20, 2006
Time: 6:30 – 9:00 PM
RSVP: Lt. Charlie Gorman, Redmond Police Dept. (425) 556-2566 or e-mail:

The National Weather Service will train new and veteran spotters, including interested citizens, amateur radio, CERT, citizen corps, and law enforcement staff, on how to look for and report significant weather events. Training includes video demonstrations. Spotters are needed, particularly in rural parts of King County, as well as those who have weather instrumentation, such as an anemometer.

If planning to attend this spotter training session, please RSVP so an appropriate number of handout materials can be on hand. Class capacity is 60, so sign up early! We look forward to seeing you at this or other Skywarn Weather Spotter training sessions, and receiving your hazardous weather reports.
