Gwinnett County Emergency Management wants to teach you about storms.
The department is holding a severe weather class on May 1. The class is intended to teach attendees how to identify “potential severe weather features,” storm structure, storm development and how to report severe weather incidents to the National Weather Service.
The class could serve as the basis to become an “active storm spotter” — someone who regularly informs the National Weather Service of emerging severe weather — or simply provide the tools for you to determine when the skies are about to open. All who attend will leave with a basic knowledge of how storms work and what it looks like when one is brewing, a county release said.
The class will be held in partnership with the National Weather Service. It will be hosted in the Gwinnett Justice and Administration Center auditorium at 6 p.m. GJAC is located at 75 Langley Dr. in Lawrenceville.
Pre-registration is required. Those interested can call 770-513-5600 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
