Tornado Simulation Planned in Ardmore

05-05-06 - This Tuesday emergency workers in Ardmore will find out just how prepared the city is in the event of a tornado.

Emergency Management as well as the police and fire departments will be simulating an actual tornado emergency Tuesday afternoon. Between the hours of 2:00 p.m. and 5:00 p.m. the sirens will go off and everyone will spring into action.

The simulation will give residents a chance to determine their plans at work, home, and school in case of a tornado. Officials say if there is an actual threat of severe weather Tuesday, the drill will be postponed to another day.

The Red Cross has more information on how to be prepared for severe weather like tornado's on their website.
