Flood Inundation Map
NEW! Local Flood Maps Now Available!
Stephenson County is happy to present the new NOAA/USGS Flooding Inundation mapping now available to the public. Flood Inundation maps will show the extent of flooding that can be expected over a given area. These maps will help indicate when floodwaters are likely to impact roadways, streets, buildings, etc. State and local agencies that must operate during flood events are the primary audience for these maps, however, the maps are also available to other agencies, media, and the general public. See it for yourself at the National Weather Service's Flood Inundation Mapping page.

Stephenson County Weather Spotter Training 2015 Comment Printer Friendly Send to a Friend Save as PDF 
Training
The Stephenson County Emergency Management Agency is teaming up with the National Weather Service to host a Weather Spotter Training class on March 12, 2015.
National Weather Service Spotter Training Flyer 2015

Each year, approximately 300 community members gather to learn the ins and outs of severe weather hazards and what they can do to help keep our community safe.  In the past, this class has attracted a number of community leaders, public officials, and news stations from all over Northern Illinois and Eastern Iowa.

The purpose of this class is to educate our community of the dangers of severe weather, leaving them with an understanding of the general structure and movement of storms. We rely heavily on many of these individuals as volunteers during severe weather events in which their training provides them with the knowledge and ability to understand what is in front of them. When each second matters, being able to properly identify the features of an impending storm can mean everything to our communities.

WHEN:
Thursday, March 12, 2015 from 6:30 - 8:30 pm.  
Registration will begin at 6:00 pm.

WHERE:  
Highland Community College
Building H, Room 201
2998 W. Pearl City Road
Freeport, IL 61032

National Weather Service Weather Spotter training is FREE, open to the public, and lasts approximately two (2) hours.


ANNOUNCEMENT!

Dragon Popcorn to sponsor the National Weather Service Spotter Training class!
