Portage County taking part in statewide tornado drill on March 23 | #android | #security

The Portage County Office of Homeland Security and Emergency Management will be sharing videos and information during Ohio Severe Weather Awareness Week, which starts on Sunday, to help residents prepare for, survive and recover from severe weather disasters. 

“Our county is no stranger to tornadoes and flooding. There have been numerous tornadoes in our area with minimal damage since 2020,” said Ryan Shackelford, director of Portage Homeland Security and Emergency Management. “Our goal is to make the tools available to residents so they can be ready and weather the storm. Severe Weather Awareness Week is a great time to make a plan and learn more.” 

Midway through the week PCOHSEM and local municipalities will participate in the Statewide Tornado Drill, at 9:50 a.m. Wednesday, March 23. The drill is coordinated by Ohio Emergency Management Agency and the National Weather Service.
