Tornado Ready

Tornado Ready 2022- 2023 is here! This severe weather education program brings the CBS 58 Ready Weather team into your school.  This interactive program focuses on having a plan when severe weather strikes. Just as your students practice storm drills at school, our program encourages students to take that same drill home with them. 

One of our meteorologists will visit your school, talk to students about the importance of having a severe weather plan, show a short video about finding their Ready Spot and answer questions from students. Your school will be also be featured on CBS 58 News that evening. 

We are focusing on multi-grade assemblies. Our preference is 2nd through 5th grade, however, all-school assemblies or individual grades are negotiable.

Each Tornado Ready program is about 45 minutes to an hour in length. 

To schedule your visit, contact Chief Meteorologist Drew Burgoyne at [email protected]. Please put the words Tornado Ready into the subject line. You can also call at (414) 607-8140.
