As many of you will know I was fortunate enough to receive a Churchill Trust Fellowship to visit the US and Canada to learn more about how warnings are issued; how authorities conduct evacuations and how the National Weather Service operates.

I met many wonderful, generous and committed people, and (they know who they are)  am very grateful for their time and warmth. I will keep in touch with them all.

The report’s here. The principal areas of interest are:



Community Awareness

Warnings and social media

Strategic direction.

If you are considering enhancing your experience and knowledge, please consider a Churchill Trust opportunity.
