This drill is part of Severe Weather Awareness Week which lasts from March 26-30, 2018.

  • Warning: A product issued by National Weather Service local offices indicating that a particular weather hazard is either imminent or has been reported. A warning indicates the need to take action to protect life and property. The type of hazard is reflected in the type of warning (i.e., tornado warning, blizzard warning, etc.).

The drill will proceed as follows on Wednesday March 28:

  • 10:00 am: Tornado Watch
  • 10:15 am: Tornado Warning – Outdoor warning sirens should be activated consistent with countywide policy.
  • 10:30 am: End of Drill
