Become a Volunteer Canwarn Storm Spotter

April 3, 2016

Goderich, Ontario, April 1st, 2016.

The County of Huron is pleased to announce that Environment Canada is offering a free CANWARN training session in our region this spring.

CANWARN volunteers are trained to look for clues in the sky that indicate severe weather may be approaching. When members spot severe weather, they send their reports to Environment Canada meteorologists who use the information to refine their forecast or prepare a severe weather watch or warning.

CANWARN training is open to members of the public who have an interest in weather monitoring and reporting. The session in our region will occur on Wednesday, April 20th from 7:00 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. at the Emergency Services Training Centre, 40193 Blyth Road, Blyth, Ontario.

Individuals interested in participating are required to register by contacting Geoff Coulson, Warning Preparedness Meteorologist with Environment Canada at
