StormTracker Alan Broerse

Alan Broerse has been with the NEWS 9 weather team since 2005 as a StormTracker and on NEWS 9 This Morning producing the weather show for Jed Castles.       

Alan has been a serious student of severe weather all his life. He was in his first tornado at age 5, and many more since then.  Now,  at age 49, Alan is into his second career after retiring from the Oklahoma City Police Department, doing 25-years of service there as a Master Sergeant.

Before his retirement, he taught storm spotting and storm safety to officers and civilians.  Among his many assignments at the Oklahoma City Police Department Alan was a leader in the Emergency Response Team, where he actively worked the Oklahoma City Bombing crime scene.  Alan also worked the devastated areas of the infamous May 3, 1999 tornado in Oklahoma City.

Alan's duties as a StormTracker have taken him from Texas to Kansas covering storms and tornadoes, bringing those events to our NEWS 9 viewers. He has been certified by the National Weather Service as a Storm Spotter and Volunteer, attending annual workshops sponsored by the National Weather Service.                                                                  

Alan's main duties for NEWS 9 include working with NEWS 9 Chief Meteorologist Gary England and the NEWS 9 weather team, tracking, reporting and filming severe weather events.

StormTrackers are in constant contact with not only NEWS 9 meteorologists, but the National Weather Service, emergency managers and citizens of the community to save lives.     In the TV producing aspect, Alan makes sure that all the "behind the scenes" work is done so that every morning show runs smooth in the weather department.                                                                     

Alan is a Christian, and associated with the Christian church. He grew up in Oklahoma City, attending U.S. Grant High School before joining the Oklahoma City Police Department in 1980. His interests include, storm chasing, he's been doing so for over 23-years, astronomy, photography, and he's an award winning Pen and Ink artist.  Alan also enjoys hunting, fishing, and his three daughters, Alicia, Jennifer and Lori, occupy much of his time; not to forget his first grandchild Allison.
