NWS Jacksonville Outreach

The NWS Office in Jacksonville, FL is actively involved in educating the communities we serve in Northeast Florida and Southeast Georgia through our Outreach Program. We offer various forms of outreach including school visits, office tours, presentations, and we participate in science fairs, career days, safety expos, etc. We also partner with Emergency Management Agencies and work closely with volunteer organizations such as county based Citizen Emergency Response Teams, Red Cross Chapters and Amateur Radio Clubs to help promote weather safety and awareness throughout communities by providing educational presentations and manning booths.

School Visits and Presentations

We offer virtual and in-person school presentations to Elementary, Middle, and High Schools and Colleges in Northeast Florida and Southeast Georgia. If you would like to have one of our meteorologists present to your class, please fill out this request form, and we will email you with more details! If you have questions or need assistance with the form, please email our Outreach Coordinator

Office Tours

We welcome visitors for office tours to learn about the NWS, our operations, and our services. We can comfortably host groups of 20 or less and provide an office tour as well as a presentation. The tour and presentation usually last about 1 hour. For student groups, chaperones are required and we do ask for separate tours for each group of 20 students. Office tours can be given throughout the year and are usually done in the morning. If you are interested in arranging an office visit, please email our Outreach Coordinator.

NWS Participation in Fairs, Expos, and Shows

We appreciate opportunities to present weather information at community, club, and business safety events. If you are interested in having the NWS Jacksonville present at such an event, please email our Outreach Coordinator
