Severe Weather Awareness Week is April 13 - 17, 2015
Statewide Tornado Drill day is Thursday April 16. The Outdoor Warning Sirens, NOAA Weather Radios, and Emergency Alert System will sound test alerts twice that day to provide you an opportunity to practice your plans:

First alert | 1:45 p.m. | allows schools and businesses to practice their severe weather procedures during normal business hours
Second alert | 6:55 p.m. | allows families and households to practice their plans at home

National Terrorism Advisory System (NTAS)
The National Terrorism Advisory System, or NTAS, replaces the color-coded Homeland Security Advisory System (HSAS). This new system will more effectively communicate information about terrorist threats by providing timely, detailed information to the public, government agencies, first responders, airports and other transportation hubs, and the private sector.

What is Emergency Management?
Emergency Management is the process of preparing for, mitigating, responding to and recovering from an emergency.  Emergency Management is a dynamic process.  Planning, though critical, is not the only component.  Training, conducting drills, testing equipment and coordinating activities with the community are other important functions.
