The Rockdale Volunteer Fire Department was the scene for a Project Skywarn training session last week conducted by Mark Fox, (L), meteorologist from the National Weather Service Fort Worth office. About 25 participated, including members of the Rockdale VFD, amateur radio operators and Milam County Emergency Management officials. Fox discussed thunderstorm formation, severe weather production, and features associated with severe storms. The program discussed spotter operations and recommended reporting procedures. The two-hour multimedia format training featured numerous pictures of storms and nearly 25 minutes of storm video clips. The annual training is rotated between Cameron and Rockdale. The program is co-hosted by Cameron and Rockdale VFD’s and Milam County Emergency Management. Certificates of completion will be mailed to attendees.
