No office, no matter what the technology, can function if the equipment does not work. At each NWS office, an electronic staff makes sure that the tools needed by the meteorologist are working properly and calibration maintained. At WFO Jackson, there is a top-ranked team that keep the equipment humming.

 

 

Staffed with dedicated employees, the NWS is fortunate in having the electronic staff that we do. There are numerous stories of Electronic Technicians who brave every element in fixing vital equipment that fails just as the weather deteriorates, and the meteorologist needs it the most. Climbing radar towers, slippery with ice, or buffeted with storm-force winds and driving rain, the el-tech in the NWS is an unsung hero.
