The Scenario

Are you up to the challenge?

The 2008 National Severe Weather Workshop will feature a realistic role-playing scenario where you can experience what it's like to fill someone else's shoes as a severe weather emergency unfolds! As an Emergency Manager, or TV News Producer/Talent, or a Meteorologist you will be presented with several challenges including:

    • Dealing with multiple weather-related hazards at the same time
    • Informing large venue operators of potential impacts and possible evacuation
    • Deciding how to manage media content during the event

The workshop exercise is designed to inform and educate and will be conducted over a two-day period beginning Thursday afternoon, March 6, and resuming Friday afternoon, March 7.
