This Winter and Spring Fox Chicago has been busy working with the National Weather Service, local emergency managers, storm spotters and weather enthusiasts to prepare for severe weather in Chicago.  Along with our Fox Chicago Weather Education Days (http://www.myfoxchicago.com/subindex/weather/weather_ed) we also work in tandem with local communities and agencies to make sure we are all prepared for dangerous storms that could affect Chicago.

On March 6, 2010 was the 19th Annual Advanced Severe Weather Conference. (www.dupagesevereweather.com) Chief Meteorologist Amy Freeze was invited back for a second year to MC the day.  The Annual Advanced Spotter Training Seminar is held at Wheaton College.  The  program is put on by DuPage County Office of Homeland Security and Emergency Management, College of DuPage, and the National Weather Service. This seminar usually attracts about 600people including volunteer spotters, amateur radio operators, emergency managers, and representatives from police, fire, and public works.  There was a full day of speakers (http://www.dupagesevereweather.com/speakers)  who shared valuable information about severe weather and storm safety.
