Review for MidWest SSTRC, Inc, Monona, WI, USA

Rating: 4 stars  

As a 911 operator, many of my co-workers do not receive any type of training as a dispatcher; and when severe weather strikes we can count on this team to be relaying the right information, to the right source, at the right time. With the great advances in internet, I know of many people who will listen in on the MidWest SSTRC feed online to keep up with the weather and get a more accurate description of where the weather is happening at that moment. This group is very dedicated and explifies it's mission whenever severe weather affects Southern Wisconsin. I think the information that this group provides also helps the "tax-payer dollar" go further; the National Weather Service will not always have the funds to investigate in detail each storm event, which is where these volunteers fill the gap. The group is always striving to become better and remain a positive image in the community.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Increase the funds to improve weather education for citizens, as well as begin a program to supply weather radios to homes that are out of tornado warning siren distance or have strong financial burdens.
