NWS – Shreveport Skywarn
Sep 23 @ 7:30 pm – 8:30 pm

NWS Shreveport Partners,

Now that we are into the late summer, we’ll soon be approaching our Fall severe weather season. That means it’s time for the Fall 2021 Skywarn Training Season. Unfortunately, due to ongoing COVID restrictions, we will not be able to conduct in-person classes. Therefore, we are going to handle this season much like last Spring. We will teach four virtual courses, and two will use Facebook Live and will not require pre-registration. Two will use GoToMeeting and will require pre-registration. The dates are listed below. These four classes all start at 7:00 pm Central Time.

  • Thursday, September 23, 2021: 7:00 pm-8:30 pm
  • Monday, September 27, 2021: 7:00 pm-8:30 pm
    • Facebook Live: No registration required

Based on the live viewership from our past virtual classes, we decided that doing a few areawide, all-inclusive courses would be better and probably have better attendance than doing many virtual types targeting specific groups of counties/parishes. If needed, we can conduct one of these virtual classes during regular business hours. However, we do recognize that some groups, such as our law enforcement and fire/rescue folks, may need special classes for their organizations to fulfill annual training requirements. If you are part of these organizations and need to schedule a particular course with us outside of one of the dates listed above, please fill out this Skywarn Class Request Form, and either Charlie Woodrum or Davyon Hill will get in touch with you.

We here at the National Weather Service in Shreveport greatly value our relationships and partnerships with you. I don’t think I can emphasize enough how much we truly rely on you folks in the field who provide us valuable ground truth information. Whether it’s damage reports or snow reports, and for helping to spread the word to promote weather safety before and during hazardous weather. Thank you for everything and for being so understanding as we continue to navigate these difficult times.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to email us at sr-shv.skywarn@noaa.gov or Warning Coordination Meteorologist Charlie Woodrum.

Sincerely,

NWS Shreveport – SKYWARN Coordinator

Child Safety Seat Event – Clarksville
Sep 24 @ 1:00 pm – 4:00 pm

Child Passenger Safety Events set in August, September

PARIS – Texas Department of Transportation personnel and its local agency partners will conduct three child passenger safety events in August and September 2021 at three different locations in Northeast Texas.

The dates, times, and locations of these events are

Sept. 24, 1:00 to 4:00 pm, pavilion adjacent to Clarksville City Hall (800 West Main).

TxDOT personnel and representatives from partner agencies will be on hand to help parents evaluate their current child passenger seats and other safety factors.

“Parents can come by with their vehicle, child, and car seat, and we will help them make sure their seat is safe and installed correctly,” said Monica Yates, TxDOT traffic funding specialist based in Paris. “We also need to know your child’s weight and height, so please bring that info with you.”

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, people do not install three out of four child passenger seats correctly. Common child safety seat errors include:

  • Installing the seat too loosely.
  • Putting the harness straps through the wrong slots.
  • Leaving harness straps too loose.
  • Positioning the chest clip incorrectly.
  • Using the wrong seat belt path.

Drivers should refer to their specific car seat manufacturer’s manual for instructions on installing a safety seat. The vehicle owner’s manual also includes information on the proper placement of car seats and good use of the seat belt or LATCH system.

More information on these events and child passenger safety is available by calling Yates at (903) 737-9292.
