Schedules set for severe weather preparedness classes in Wichita area

Yes, it’s mid-January and we’ve seen no shortage of cold weather – or snow, for that matter.

But spring isn’t all that far away, as the arrival of severe weather preparedness classes demonstrates. The Wichita branch of the National Weather Service has released its schedule of classes. The classes are offered in each of the 26 counties of southeast Kansas that encompass the Wichita branch’s warning coverage area.

Sedgwick County Emergency Management has put together additional classes throughout Sedgwick County. Check each schedule to see which date is most convenient. The classes are free and are expected to last about two hours.
