If you're interested in being a Spotter, you're in luck! We've got a FREE online training class (the last of the fall season!) coming up tomorrow night at 6 pm. Follow along on your computer or mobile device, and all ages are welcome! Register now and get more information at


For those who want to come out and help. 13 November we will meet at PSOB at 9am to organize the new trailer and clean out and organize the other trailers. Will sort out and remove old and replace with new, inventory and report what is needed and dispose of old and outdated supplies.


Learn The Sounds of Fire Safety: Know the difference between the sound of your carbon monoxide (CO) alarm and the smoke alarm, and the low-battery signals. If the low-battery signal sounds, replace the batteries or replace the device. If the carbon monoxide (CO) alarm still sounds, get to a fresh air location and call 9-1-1. Hear the chirp, make a change! Hear a beep, get on your feet!

Hurricane season is here…

Hurricane season is here…

Do you know how to protect your property from a hurricane? Consider:

✅ De-cluttering drains and gutters
✅ Bringing in outside furniture
✅ Protecting your doors and windows using plywood



Just having enough supplies to make it through a hurricane isn’t enough. You need plenty to make it through what could be a LONG recovery period too. Water and electricity could be out for a week or more. Have enough non-perishable food, water and medicine to last each person in your family for a MINIMUM of three days. Also make sure you have extra cash, a battery-powered radio, flashlights, and a portable crank or solar powered USB charger to charge your cell phone.


DEA Drug Take Back Day is this Saturday, April 24. Please take the time to dispose of any old and/or unused medications at the locations listed below between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. Unused medications are an open invitation for misuse, which can lead to addiction. National survey results show most misused prescription drugs are obtained from family and friends, often from the home medicine cabinet. If you are unable to attend the event this Saturday, we have also listed several locations offering year-round disposal options.

DEA Take Back Day Collection Sites:
Second Police Precinct – 1209 20th St
Third Police Precinct – 949 George Washington Hwy N
Fourth Police Precinct – 4764 Station House Rd
Fifth Police Precinct - 400 Volvo Pkwy
Chesapeake Sheriff's Office, Admin Building – 401 Albemarle Dr
Virginia State Police, Area 47 Office - 1557 S Military Hwy

Year-Round Drug Disposal Sites:
Chesapeake Public Safety Building, Main Lobby – 304 Albemarle Dr
CVS Pharmacy – 1329 Kempsville Rd
Walgreen’s Pharmacy – 1316 Battlefield Blvd. N

NWS Wakefield Skywarn Page

Although SKYWARN® spotters provide essential information for all types of weather hazards, the focus is reporting on severe local thunderstorms. In an average year, the United States experiences more than 10,000 severe thunderstorms, 5,000 floods and more than 1,000 tornadoes.

Since the program started in the 1970s, the information provided by SKYWARN® spotters, coupled with Doppler radar technology, improved satellite and other data, has enabled NWS to issue more timely and accurate warnings for tornadoes, severe thunderstorms and flash floods. SKYWARN® storm spotters form the nation's first line of defense against severe weather. There can be no finer reward than to know that your efforts have given your family and neighbors the precious gift of time--minutes that can help save lives.

Are you ready to help? Sign up for a virtual training to become a spotter.

** Important: Due to high demand, these class will NOT be held in every county every year. You may attend an NWS Wakefield SKYWARN class in any location that is convenient for you, regardless of where you live. If you are interested in hosting a class, please contact our SKYWARN program Coordinat...

Public Service Announcement: You'll want to be inside for the middle one. Well, maybe the others, too. But the others probably won't heat the air to 50,000°F.

A new tethering law goes into effect in Virginia on July 1. The new law enhances the state code’s “adequate shelter” definition by prohibiting tethering in certain weather conditions and changes the length required for a tether. The only exception: if an animal control officer deems the animal is safe from predators and well-suited and well-equipped to tolerate the environment.
