AWR331-V - Winter Weather Hazards: Science and Preparedness
Date & Times
Aug 13, 2020 from 1 PM - 5 PM; Aug 14, 2020 from 1 PM - 5 PM
Description

This eight-hour awareness-level course is designed to prepare participants to understand the basics of winter weather science, the winter weather forecasting process, how winter weather forecasts are communicated, and the fundamentals of winter weather safety and preparedness. Since winter storms can strike every state in the United States, it is important that every community be ready for the hazards associated with them. This awareness-level course will fulfill the goals of the “whole community” approach to emergency management by reaching a broad sector of the community. Multiple core capabilities will be addressed, with particular emphasis on” public information and warning” and “threats and hazard identification.” Participants who represent sectors such as mass care services, health and social services, operational communications, critical transportation, and planning would further expand the discussions in this course to other corresponding core capabilities.
