- A reminder that tomorrow, November 26 at 7:00 PM there will be a meeting for everyone who might have an interest in Skywarn for Ottawa County in 2013. If you would like to be a net control operator, or get involved in staffing the EOC and/or central dispatch during severe weather, this is the meeting you should be at.

Greetings current and future Skywarn volunteers,
On Monday November 26, 2012 at 7:00 PM we will hold a meeting for all Skywarn volunteers who wish to establish a deeper involvement with the Ottawa County Skywarn team.
This meeting is not for those individuals who wish to remain members of the Skywarn Spotter Network only. We will provide information in early 2013 for our Skywarn Spotters regarding changes and updates.
The November 26, 2012 meeting is specifically for those individuals who would like to receive additional training and credentialing to allow direct involvement with the Ottawa County Office of Emergency Management (OEM) Emergency Operations Center, County OEM Net Control operations, and cooperative functions with Ottawa County Central Dispatch.
If you are interested in this level of Skywarn involvement, please mark your calendars for this important meeting. The meeting will take place at the County Filmore Complex at 12220 Filmore Street, West Olive, Michigan.
Please contact me if you are interested in the content of this meeting, but are unable to attend due to work, family, or other matters. Please be advised: if you do not attend this meeting and do not contact me in advance, you will not be considered for the above training and credentialing opportunities. You will, however, have the option of volunteering in our Skywarn Spotter Network.
If you have any questions, please contact me.
Yours in mutual service,
Jim Simmons, Ottawa County OEM
