Length of Service Awards


These awards are presented from a local level, and may be given for any reason that is appropriate. This may include recognition for an individual who has been the primary observer for many years at an institution, and otherwise would not be officially recognized. 

Institutions including schools, power stations, Corps of Engineers dams, local governments, and other entities, where an individual is not identified as the observe shall be recognized for each 25 years of service. Often, at these institutions, whomever is working at observation time will record the data.  All certificates are signed by the Assistant Administrator for Weather Services and the local official.
