Florida Tropical Training Week
Florida Tropical Training Week
Posted on 06/10/2024

National Weather Service (NWS) offices that serve the state of Florida are teaming up July 29 through August 1, 2024, to offer virtual tropical training sessions geared toward the general public. Each day will focus on a specific topic, and we will be offering 4 sessions each day; 2 midday and 2 evening classes.

Goals are to reach and teach the public on not just NWS and National Hurricane Center (NHC) products, but HOW to properly interpret this information and WHEN and HOW to properly respond, from pre-season preparedness to the post-tropical impact recovery stage. We will also showcase Florida Division of Emergency Management, FEMA, and Ready.gov tools and resources.

There is NO restriction on who can attend these online classes. Up to 1,000 guests can virtually participate in each session, but you must register to participate.

NWS hopes these trainings will be well attended by diverse public audiences and ultimately help empower attendees to make appropriate decisions when the next tropical system threatens.
