National Weather Service United States Department of Commerce

NWS La Crosse can accommodate requests for speakers or presentations for businesses, safety teams, civic groups, schools, etc. regarding severe weather safety, training, or recent weather events! Here are some details...

  • We'll do this anywhere within our local service area (including southeast Minnesota, northeast Iowa, and much of western Wisconsin)
  • Talks can range from 30-120 minutes depending on your group's needs.
  • Presentations are usually done using a computer multimedia format.
  • We can supply our own presentation equipment and brochures.
  • Talks are free (no charge).
  • If interested, email NWS La Crosse Warning Coordination Meteorologist Mike Kurz or call (608) 784-8275 x726. If you reside outside the NWS La Crosse service area, please find your local NWS office contact here.

NOTE: Due to varying NWS staffing levels, schedules, and budget/travel restrictions, speaker availability may be limited. In the event of severe weather around the scheduled speaking engagement, the NWS may need to cancel or postpone. The more advance notice you give us, the more likely we'll be able to accommodate your request.
