Thank you to all who came out to the NWS office today for our last chapter meeting of the year. Jim Coker from the Jefferson County EMA spoke about the upcoming 2021 World Games that will be held in Birmingham and how vital preparedness activities will be to support such a large venue. He also spoke about the evacuation of Samford stadium on August 31st when tornado warnings were being issued to the southwest of Jefferson County. Samford is fortunate enough to have several sturdy structures nearby to shelter thousand of fans.
Congratulations to the following individuals for accepting officer positions for 2018.
Scott Martin - President
Johnny Knobloch - Vice-President
Bill Murray - Secretary/Treasurer
