Severe Weather Awareness Week is an opportunity to get the conversation started about how you will prepare for a severe weather emergency, as well as provide you with the knowledge necessary to implement your plans.
Planning is the single greatest thing you can do to reduce the impacts of severe weather. In Michigan, these include tornadoes, flooding, high winds, and other weather patterns that could disrupt daily lives.
While we are practicing social distancing, we do not encourage you to congregate in groups for drills, but ask that you review what your plan is in the event of severe weather.
Severe Weather Awareness Week has been designated as March 21-27, with a Statewide Tornado Drill being conducted on March 24 at 1 p.m.
If a severe weather incident happens:
Do you have a plan? Where will you go? What will you do? Are you familiar with the alert systems in your area?
How will you communicate?
