Skywarn is an effort to save lives during severe weather emergencies by expanding networks of spotters and by encouraging the widest possible participation in tornado warning programs.
There is no way to stop tornadoes, and not all tornadoes show up on radar, but they can be seen. Lives can be saved. Only one instrument can detect a tornado or funnel with complete certainty--the human eye.
More concern, more spotters, more eyes are needed.
Lend us yours--learn SKYWARN! All interested parties (i.e., fire, police, EMS, security, volunteers and citizens) are encouraged to attend.
This program is coordinated by the Oakland County Homeland Security Division. Please see the Class Schedule for more information.
