About this Exercise

The Weather Watcher program was developed in cooperation with the National Weather Service in Chicago and several local Emergency Management Agencies. 

This program is designed to provide Event Organizers and Responders the tools necessary to plan, and proactively prepare for potential weather impacts BEFORE the threat occurs.

This Weather Watcher Exercise is HSEEP compliant (3.5 hours) and is designed to provide a hands-on approach to increase Situational Awareness.

Why a Weather Watcher?

Have you ever been responsible for safety of an outdoor event? If so, you have probably had concerns about the weather.

Weather is a key component of any effective outdoor event action plan. A thorough evaluation of weather hazards and continuous monitoring of  evolving hazards can lead to more confident and effective decisions regarding the safety of event-goers. The weather watcher is the person who is designated to maintain situational awareness of the weather both before and during your event and can activate your weather safety plan.

This exercise will outline the functions of the weather watcher, outline a weather evaluation and monitoring process that the weather watcher can follow and provide an overview of key forecast and monitoring products and tools utilized by the Weather Watcher.
