The National Weather Service in Dodge City provides storm identification/spotter training sessions each spring.  
These sessions are done in cooperation with county Emergency Management agencies across the area.  All training 
is free and is open for anyone to attend and is not designed for just storm spotters.  Anyone with a desire to

The program lasts around 1 1/2 hours.
