Description:Every year the United States experiences more severe weather than any other country in the world. In order to reduce deaths, injuries, and property losses, emergency managers must work closely with the NWS and the news media to provide effective warnings that can be received and understood by people at risk. This course is intended to help facilitate that process. Each student needs to review the Warning Annex and procedures for hazardous weather events in his or her EOP before attending the course. Each student should also bring a copy of the community’s warning annex and procedures to the class. It is strongly recommended that all participants have attended the Hazardous Weather and Flooding Preparedness course before attending this course. This course is one of the Advanced Professional Series (APS) Elective courses. For more information on the APS please go to http://training.fema.gov/emiweb/APS
