Default 2013 CANWARN Training Dates/Locations

I got an email from Geoff Coulson over at Environment Canada the other day with the first round of dates and locations for the 2013 CANWARN training sessions. I've cut and paste the email below. Enjoy!

Folks, while spring has now officially arrived winter-like weather continues to grip much of the province. However during the course of the coming weeks milder air masses will make their way north and with them will come the possibility of severe thunderstorms. Once again Environment Canada is offering a number of CANWARN storm spotter training courses across the province beginning in Southwestern Ontario in mid-April and wrapping up in Northwestern Ontario in early June. Most of the dates in Southern and Northeastern Ontario have been confirmed but there could still be some additions in the coming weeks. In addition, the training dates and venues in Northwestern Ontario will be announced in the coming weeks.

I want to again take this opportunity to thank you all for being a part of the CANWARN program. Your timely reports of severe thunderstorms and/or their resulting damage continue to play an integral role in our Watch and Warning program. If you haven't come out to a training session in the last few years feel free to come out for a refresher this year. I'm looking forward to seeing many familiar faces during the course of the coming weeks as well as some new ones.

And so without further delay, the following are the currently confirmed training dates in Southern and Northeastern Ontario. The training dates in the Northwest will follow in upcoming emails. In order to get a sense of numbers, please RSVP to [email address] with the session you plan on attending. For those attending the Sarnia session, please RSVP directly to Bill Hoad at [email address]
