With Gov. Rick Snyder declaring Michigan’s Severe Weather Awareness Week from April 12-18, the Michigan State Police, Emergency Management and Homeland Security Division (MSP/EMHSD) is calling upon Michiganders to take action to prepare by participating in a voluntary statewide tornado drill at 2 p.m. EDT on Thursday, April 16.
Businesses, organizations, schools, families and individuals are encouraged to be a part of this statewide preparedness activity, but are not required to do so. Nearly all state of Michigan facilities will be participating.
The Delta Township Fire Department will sound the outdoor warning sirens tomorrow (Thursday 4/16) at 2 p.m. in coordination with the State-Wide Tornado Drill. We encourage residents to take this opportunity to practice their Tornado plan in their businesses and residences.
