The annual weather workshop once again made it's way to Bowling Green to help better inform the public about emergency situations and weather.
"That's one of the main reasons we come, to pick up new information, new ideas, listen to some of the stories thet have happened in other places, to decide which way we need to go with things," said Muhlenberg County Emergency Manager Keith Putnam.
The event is sponsored by the state's division of emergency management and it featured several vendors.
Even businesses like utility companies come to learn.
"Having a relationship with these folks in advance, knowing what's coming is extremely important. We can plan, we can prepare to better serve our customers," said KU Energies David Guy.
There were many classes held today including assessing weather damage, using ham radios, and storm chasing.
Organizers say one of the best ways to be notified of weather is a weather radio especially if you're not outside.
"If you're playing outside or cutting the yard, outdoor sirens are what they are. They're outdoor warning devices. A weather radio is an indoor warning device, so it can warn you when you're at home, especially when you're asleep," said Bruce Thomas of Midland Radio.
Participants say another great aspect is the relationships and working together to help notify the public of severe weather and emergencies.
"There's always going to be information out there for us, and that also helps us when we do networking and helps us find resources," said Muhlenberg County Emergency Manager Genon Putnam.
This is the third year for the event and organizers say they'll have it again next year, but it may not be in Bowling Green.
