Public Information Statement National Weather Service Indianapolis IN 600 AM EDT Sun Mar 17 2019
This week is severe weather preparedness week in Indiana. Everyone has a critical role in safety during severe weather. We will discuss roles of key players and planning for severe weather.
Though severe weather can happen any time of the day or year, it occurs most often from April to July.
National Weather Service offices train volunteers called Skywarn Spotters who report what thunderstorms are producing. These reports are correlated with radar data and aid meteorologists in the warning process. Local National Weather Service web sites identify Skywarn spotter training dates and locations.
Television and radio stations are key players in weather safety by broadcasting National Weather Service watches and warnings. They also provide weather hazard safety information in program specials and outreach functions. The media also carry recovery efforts after disasters. Stations also relay the statewide tornado drill warning.
Newspapers are involved too by promoting severe weather preparedness week and carrying stories of damaging or significant weather events.
State and county homeland security agencies also prepare for severe weather. These officials plan for and respond to disasters and coordinate recovery efforts. County homeland security also helps arrange National Weather Service Skywarn spotter training and supports medical facilities, schools and businesses with weather safety procedures.
State, county and local highway, law enforcement, fire department and emergency response agencies as well as the American Red Cross and other volunteer organizations also plan for and respond to weather emergencies. The Indiana State Police disseminates National Weather Service watches and warnings to the counties. Many law enforcement and fire department personnel receive Skywarn spotter training, participate in storm spotting, and aid citizens when disasters occur. These people are the first on scene after a disaster.
Schools, the private sector and members of the general public also play an important role in severe weather preparedness. That role is to know how weather may threaten, to have a plan of action, to exercise the plan, and then to follow the plan when severe weather strikes. Everyone must remain aware of the potential for severe weather, actively monitor weather information sources and take action when warnings are issued or storms threaten.
On Monday, we will cover hazardous weather outlooks and watches and what everyone should do long before any hazardous weather occurs.
