STATEWIDE TORNADO DRILL IS THIS WEDNESDAY AT 9:50 A.M. – NOT AT NOON
Part of Ohio’s Spring Severe Weather Awareness Week, March 1-7
(COLUMBUS, OHIO) – Franklin County Emergency Management and Homeland Security (FCEM&HS) is urging the community to participate in a Statewide Tornado Drill at 9:50 a.m. this Wednesday, March 4, when the Franklin County Outdoor Warning Siren System will be activated. The sirens will be activated one time for three minutes – a longer tone than in the regular Wednesday noon tests. The test tone will be the same “tornado warning” tone which would be used in an actual tornado warning.
The 9:50 a.m. March 4 siren activation will be in place of the regular weekly Wednesday noon test of the Franklin County Outdoor Warning Siren System.
