Tornado drill tomorrow, part of Severe Weather Preparedness Week

Tomorrow at 10 a.m., Fermilab will conduct a tornado drill along with a test of the Sitewide Emergency Warning System. These activities coincide with the Severe Weather Preparedness Week, which the National Weather Service declared to be the week of March 2.

All areas of the laboratory should participate in the drill by either proceeding to the nearest tornado shelter or conducting a tabletop discussion. It is up to the discretion of division, section or center management as to which option is exercised.

This is also an opportunity — at home or in the workplace — to review and remind yourself of local tornado procedures and to practice reacting to tornado alarms by moving to and occupying designated tornado shelters. Additional information can be found at the Business Services Section Emergency Management Web page under the Severe Weather section.
