Fri, 18 Jan 2013 02:22:13 GMT — The Winter/Spring 2013 spotter training season is underway. Classes will be held throughout mid-Missouri counties until about the first of April.Classes are open to everyone whether you want to actually be a volunteer storm spotter or not. If you just want to learn more about severe weather or how to prepare and protect yourself, then a spotter training class is the place to be.You can attend any class that is convenient for you. They're free and open to the public. If there's a number provided, it's suggested to call ahead to reserve a space.If your county is not listed, it's possible that it may be added later. Just in case one isn't, I suggest attending the meeting closest to you. These dates are subject to change.Montgomery County - January 31, 2013 at 6:30 p.m.Montgomery County R-II High School, 394 Highway 19, Montgomery City, MOContact Montgomery County EMA: Bob Bishop - 573-564-2283Audrain County - February 5, 2013 at 6:30 p.m.Jensen Auditorium, Audrain Medical Center, 620 E Monroe St., Mexico, MOContact Audrain County EMA: Steve Shaw - 573-473-5892Gasconade County - February 11, 2013 at 6:30 p.m.Owensville High School, 3336 Highway 19 North, Owensville, MOContact Owensville EMA: Dan Dyer- 573-437-2196Randolph County - February 13, 2013 at 7:00 p.m."The Lodge", 111 Rothwell Park Road, Moberly, MOPostponed (make up date not available)Cooper County - February 21, 2013 at 7:00 p.m.200 Main St., Suite 911, Boonville, MOPostponed (make up date:Thursday, March 28)Laclede County - February 21, 2013 at 6:30 p.m.Contact: Randy Rowe - 417-532-6992Postponed (make up date:Thursday, March 28)Phelps County - February 21, 2013 at 6:30 p.m.Contact: Sandy North - 573-201-9741Postponed (make up date:Thursday, March 28)Pulaski County - February 21, 2013 at 6:30 p.m.Basement Community Room, Pulaski County Courthouse, Waynesville, MOContact: Smitty Smith - 573-774-7393Postponed (make up date March 20)Osage County - February 26, 2013 at 6:30 p.m.County Emergency Operations Center, 205 E Main St., Linn, MOContact Osage County EMA: Andrea Rice - 573-897-3561 ext 220Recently AddedCole County - February 28, 2013 at 6:30 p.m.Jefferson City Police Training Room, 401 Monroe Street, Jefferson City, MOContact Cole County EMA: Bill Farr - 573-634-9146Saline County - March 11, 2013 at 7:00 p.m.Saline County Ambulance Building, 354 W Arrow, Marshall, MOCallaway County - April 2, 2013 at 6:30 p.m.Civic Center, 282 South Greenway, Holts Summit, MOContact Callaway County EMA: Michelle Kidwell - 573-592-2480Morgan County - April 8, 2013 at 6:30 p.m.Justice Center, Versailles, MOContact: Rick Bias -number not available
