Great Tornado Drill

Great Tornado Drill

Seminole County launched a community wide exercise last year called The Great Tornado Drill.  This drill encourages individuals to identify a safe place inside their home or business.  During the drill, families and/or business associates were encouraged to go to this area to test their tornado response plan.  This year, the event will go State-wide on Wednesday, January 17, 2018, but the time to identify your safe area and train family / staff about this location is now. 

The two most deadly and violent tornado outbreaks in the State’s history occurred in Central Florida.  Strong storm fronts and possible violent tornadoes are most frequent in the spring so the time to prepare is now.  Get a NOAA weather alerting radio, register for tornado warnings on mobile apps, and practice your tornado response plan.
