Thunderstorms have the potential to become severe with little to no warning. There are many threats that accompany thunderstorms.
Severe thunderstorms greatly impact the call volume at a PSAP.
Thousands of people are injured each year, and dozens are killed each year due to violent thunderstorms. No states are immune to a thunderstorm.
This course will cover the makeup of a thunderstorm, tornadoes, damaging winds, flash floods, lightning, and hail.
I have over 22 years of experience as a 9-1-1 Telecommunicator/Trainer. I have experience in PSAPs large and small. I currently work part-time in a PSAP to retain my skills and industry knowledge.
I am passionate about training and public education.
I currently hold the following certifications NENA ENP, APCO RPL, Texas Commission on Law Enforcement Master Telecommunicator and Advanced Instructor, Texas Department of Public Safety TCIC/TLETS Instructor, and National Center for Missing and Exploited Children Instructor.
