Severe Weather Awareness Week - Statewide Tornado Drill on March 6 at 9:50 a.m.Tuesday, March 05, 2013
This week is Severe Weather Awareness Week and the Solon Schools, in conjunction with the city of Solon, will be participating in a statewide tornado and severe weather warning siren test on Wednesday, March 6, at 9:50 a.m. Solon students will be participating in the drill at school.
The Solon Fire Department encourages residents to tune into AM 530 to receive up-to-date information during the drill or any time the sirens are sounded in Solon. Solon safety officials also request that residents do not call the police dispatch center during the drill to find out what is happening as those calls overwhelm the system and jeopardize community safety.
