Every school, citizen, and business is encouraged to participate in the drill.
Emergency Management will advertise the tornado drill on our Facebook page. Local warning sirens and the NOAA All-Hazards Weather Radio will be activated to signal the start of the drill.
Emergency Management encourages everyone to consider participating by simply sheltering-in-place or discussing sheltering options/plans among co-workers/family members.
The purpose of the drill is to test everyone's readiness for life-threatening severe weather events such as tornadoes, flash floods, and damaging winds.
