The National and Ohio Severe Weather Awareness Week will be held from March 2nd, 2014 until March 8th, 2014. As a local Skywarn program, I ask that you take a moment and visit www.weathersafety.ohio.gov for more information. During severe weather awareness week, please try to share information about preparedness and severe weather with different people that you know, so that we can be better prepared for when severe weather strikes. We are a Storm Ready County as declared by that National Weather Service, which is a great honor and it is because of people like you.
With that being said, the statewide tornado drill will be held at 9:50AM, on Wednesday, March 5th. Our Skywarn group will be conducting a net with check-ins, as well as a voluntary siren test for people who would like to report the siren closest to them is working. The net operator will be mobile as the EMA will be conducting alert monitor tests in the communication room.
Also a reminder that our annual Skywarn Training on Tuesday, March 25th, 2014 at 6:30pm. This will be located at the jobs and family services building again this year.
I want to personally take this time to thank each and everyone who participates in Skywarn. I feel honored to be the leader of such a group that is committed to help protect lives and property. If you need anything or have any questions please feel free to contact me.
73's (Best Regards)

What do the Sandusky County Warning Sirens Indicate?
Monthly Test – 3 Minute Steady Tone, this ensures sirens will work when needed they are tested at noon on the first Saturday of every month. If severe weather is in the area the siren test will be cancelled.
Tornado Warning - 3 Minute Steady Tone which means TAKE COVER and TUNE to LOCAL NEWS MEDIA for further information and updates.
Sandusky County does not issue an all clear. Sirens are sounded when credible reports from spotters are received and/or NWS issues a tornado warning for Sandusky County.
All Other Emergencies (attack, chemical, etc…) - 3 minute wavering or warbling sound which means TAKE COVER and TUNE to LOCAL NEWS MEDIA for information and instructions. There will be no all clear.
