To obtain critical weather information, the National Weather Service established SKYWARN with partner organizations.

SKYWARN is a volunteer program with nearly 290,000 trained severe weather spotters.

These volunteers help keep their local communities safe by providing timely and accurate reports of severe weather to local officials.

Each year, the Kane County Office of Emergency Management sponsors a countywide severe weather spotters training class conducted by the National Weather Service.

This year's class will be at 7 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 28 in Elgin Community College's Seigle Auditorium, 1700 Spartan Drive in Elgin.

This event is free for all weather enthusiasts and seating is available on a first-come, first-seated basis.
