Glad to see sooooo many smiling faces here to learn about preparedness and science with our efforts to better prepare our public safety partners on winter weather hazards.
And sharing how critical the National Weather Service is to our daily response and every single Emergency Operations Center is essential for all professionals in any emergency. No matter where you are in the US, there is a NWS office to support your daily operations.
Sharing important information on the science of weather including how to discern these crazy charts, graphs, and data make it easier to understand how tough meteorologists have it when trying to forecast the weather.
And sharing real case studies and discussion the evolution of how response officials work together is critical for any community across this great nation.

Special shout out to Pam and the entire crew at Effingham County EMA as well as everyone in Illinois Region-9.
Looking forward to seeing all of you at the next big one!
