Learning From History: Warning Decision Making Implications from Significant Events

The Warning Decision Training Division has developed an online
presentation entitled “Learning from History: Warning Decision Making
Implications from Significant Events”
. The module is a summary of
warning decision making concepts which have been presented in
collaboration with field sights at WDM workshops since 1997. The
concepts are presented in the context of significant severe weather
events which have occurred over the past several years. Reviews of
severe weather conceptual models, situation awareness, and warning
strategies are also included in the presentation.

The training module is in a VisitView audio replay format. The presentation is available for download below. The transcript of the presentation is available in PDF and HTML formats.
