You will be traveling with one or more people who have experience as an EMT, police officer or firefighter. Some of us are trained and actively serving as a CERT (Community Emergency Response Team) volunteer. We have multiple amateur radio operators, experienced emergency dispatchers, and medical flight crew on the team as well.
On your arrival night we conduct a detailed safety briefing which includes how and when to use the safety equipment aboard our vehicle, what to expect should we encounter a disaster, and we’ll give you a brush-up on basic first aid and personal safety procedures.
You can rest assured our team takes a safe, sane approach to storm chasing. For example, in 15 years chasing, we’ve never had a windshield broken or a vehicle with more than minor cosmetic damage from hail. Unlike “extreme” chasers, if a hail core is between us and the tornado we will not cross it.
