NES recognizes Severe Weather Awareness Day  

Employees at Nashville Electric Service (NES) recently attended an event hosted by the National Weather Service and Trevecca Nazerene University to recognize Severe Weather Awareness Day.  

NES employees set up a display that explained how severe weather impacts electricity and how to stay safe during a severe weather event. The display even included a power line simulation that illustrated the danger of linemen work.  

Severe Weather Awareness Day encourages severe weather safety and preparation as Middle Tennessee enters into its peak severe weather season. The free event was held at the Boone Business Center on Trevecca Nazarene’s campus and featured guest speakers and presentations throughout the day.  

The event kicked off with a meet and greet with meteorologists from all local Nashville tv stations, who all spoke on a panel later on in the day. James Spann, Chief Meteorologist at ABC 33/40 in Birmingham served as the Keynote Speaker for the event.
