Branson's Emergency Manager Ted Martin says that locally trained weather spotters are great partners with Emergency Managers and National Weather Service Meteorologists.
Storm spotters are local citizens and emergency responders that provide the first line of information on the weather as systems approach or pass over local communities.
Thursday's three hour training programs will be presented by a meteorologist from the Springfield National Weather Service.
If you go, you can expect to learn the basics of thunderstorm development, how to identify severe weather, how to report information, and weather safety.
