Summary

SKYWARN is open to all individuals who have a genuine interest in protecting the public from the effects of severe weather. It matters not what organization you belong to, your age, your family situation, or your physical abilities. All that is required is that you attend regularly scheduled SKYWARN spotter training instructed by the National Weather Service. As far as amateur radio operators are concerned, the same guidelines apply. It makes no difference if you are a member of RACES, ARES, or the local amateur radio club.

How do we respond?

The Central Indiana SKYWARN Severe Weather Network is activated solely at the request of the Indianapolis NWS Office. Their request for spotter activation is based on information gathered from the Storm Prediction Center as well as local input from the Indianapolis NWS staff. The near real time information spotters provide is an essential piece of the total flow of information the NWS uses to determine whether a severe weather warning is issued. It is vital that the SKYWARN program strive to continuously improve the delivery of information to the NWS.

Why do we do this?

Our customer is the Indianapolis Office of the National Weather Service and our mission is to protect the lives and property of Hoosiers.

Who are we?

The SKYWARN program in Central Indiana has been active for many years. The basic core values have changed very little during that period.
