nets, either SKYWARN or for other emergency situations, can be activated at
any time when the need arises. Severe weather nets are always activated
when a severe warning, such as a severe thunderstorm warning or tornado
warning, is issued by the National Weather Service. Emergency nets
only be activated by the Emergency Coordinator, the Net Manager or one of the Assistant ECs.
However, if none are available and an emergency situation exists, any member
may activate a net.
Net operation procedures are available on the Plans page. The current Training Net script (updated March 1, 2017) can be downloaded in Microsoft Word or Adobe PDF for use on the Monday evening Training Net.
