The next board meeting has been scheduled for June 24, 2014 at 7:00 pm at the Boulder EOC on Airport Road. As always, members are welcome to attend.
Hello BCARES Members. National Weather Service is teaching a Weather Spotter training sponsored by the Boulder County Sheriff's Office. It will be held on Tuesday, May 6th at 18:30 in the training room at the Boulder County Sheriff’s Headquarters at 5600 Flatirons Parkway on 55th between Pearl and Arapahoe. Have your BCARES ID with you.
To register, please email Francesca Gonzales at the EOC (firstname.lastname@example.org) and have her put your name on the list for Weather Spotter Training. This is an opportunity to obtain your Spotter Number or get a good refresher before the upcoming severe weather season. As they say; “it isn’t a mater of IF but WHEN…”
