Statewide Tornado Drill

Wednesday, March 6

March 3 – 9 is Spring Severe Weather Awareness Week in Ohio. Franklin County Emergency Management and Homeland Security urges you to exercise your tornado safety plan during the Statewide Tornado Drill at 9:50 a.m. Wednesday, March 6.

Designing and exercising a plan for your establishment will help you respond safely in a real event.

HOW TO PARTICIPATE IN THE DRILL
  • Listen for the outdoor sirens at 9:50 a.m. on March 6.
  • Note this will take the place of the weekly Wednesday noontime outdoor warning siren test in Franklin County, and the system will be activated with a longer tone (three minutes) than in the regular Wednesday tests.
  • Practice your safety plan — go to your designated tornado shelter. Click here for more information.
  • Tell us about your participation and provide your email address in our online survey at: http://www.franklincountyohio.gov/emahs/survey.htm. We will email you a certificate of participation in return.
