The statewide test will occur this Wednesday, March 29th at 10:00 a.m. After this week, additional sirens will sound on the first Wednesday of each month at 10:15 a.m., usually thru the month of October.

If you are new to our Department, please take a moment to look at the Departments emergency action plan (EAP) and identify the tornado shelter areas in your building. Seek out the lowest level interior room or hallway, those away from glass windows and doors. If you have new personnel working with you, please take a moment during this test to show these individuals the locations of our tornado shelter areas.
