Weather 101 for Emergency Responders I


Many in law enforcement or the fire service, wish they had more training, about the sometimes deadly weather here in Oklahoma.

The goal of this course is to train all Oklahoma emergency first responders how to recognize the dangers that many various types of weather phenomena pose and how to help protect the life and property of themselves and of those they serve.

“A criminal with a gun and the weather can be equally deadly here in Oklahoma. A police officer or any emergency responder should know how to handle them both!” –Professor Steve Carano

DescriptionThis first course, in a series, will be a basic introductory course in meteorology. This course will contain 8 CLEET hours of instruction and information found in a college level introductory survey in meteorology. If you always wanted to know more about Oklahoma weather, this course is for you!

NOTE: It is highly recommended but not required you take this course before attempting Weather for Emergency Responders II. If you have taken a meteorology course in college, you could skip this course. If you need a refresher, this is also a good place to start. To ease your mind, this course does not require any math skills. Tons of discussion and visual examples.
