JOHNSTON COUNTY NC REACT TEAM 6257
SKYWARN TEAM


SKYWARN spotters must have a reliable method of communication with a SKYWARN net controller. This is often accomplished through amateur radio, and sometimes through General Mobile Radio Service (GMRS) frequencies operated by Radio Emergency Communications Teams (REACT). Amateur radio and GMRS operators are licensed with the FCC. Most local amateur radio clubs administer license classes and examinations, as well as communications and spotter logistics training. Many SKYWARN spotters are volunteer fireman who have reliable radio contact with county law enforcement dispatchers. Other SKYWARN spotters simply relay storm reports to law enforcement via their home telelphone.

Johnston County NC REACT 6257 relay storm spotters report via Two Way Radio services as well as via
social media services like Facebook.

The purpose of the Junior program is to train students in emergency preparedness and response to ensure students have the skills

learned in the classroom home, thereby spreading the preparedness
message to the entire family.
