| February 7, 2018

flagler county skywarn classes

A record number of participants – 72 – turned out last week for the Skywarn Storm Spotter class that was hosted by Flagler County Emergency Management at the Emergency Operations Center. Angie Enyedi, assistant warning and coordination meteorologist with the National Weather Service, taught the class to Flagler County residents eager to become part of the county’s volunteer storm spotter team. Flagler County has been hosting Skywarn Storm Spotter classes in coordination with the National Weather Service since 1995, with more than 2,000 residents getting trained in that time span, according to Emergency Management Technician Bob Pickering, who’s organized 51 classes. Flagler County was the first county in Florida to be certified as “Storm Ready” when the Storm Ready Program began in 1999. The criteria for certification includes both training and the flow of information to the National Weather Service. (Flagler County)
