Well it is already July and I have only done one
Dispatcher Training Session, I would like to do about
10 more before the end of September so please give me
a call if you are interested.
Ernie Ostuno has also developed a program called
"Increased Verification Effort for Severe
Thunderstorms" (INVEST) covers how to visually
discriminate between tornado and straight line wind
damage as well how to estimate wind speeds based on
structural and wind damage.� It should be offered to
your best 3-4 spotters.� We would like to train 3 - 5
adjacent counties at a time.� Please give Ernie or I
an email if there are dates that you could get people

I actually have 3 straight admin shifts August 21-23.
Could you schedule INVEST training for me to do then?
The goal for my Big Rocks is to do 5 counties.
