Weather-warning test planned for Wednesday

BLADE STAFF

Ottawa County will conduct training and drills this week in conjunction with Spring Severe Weather Awareness Week.

A key activity during this statewide event will be the test of weather warning and dissemination and preparedness procedures. The test will be at 9:50 a.m. Wednesday.

The Ottawa County siren system will be activated for 3 minutes, with the sheriff’s dispatch broadcasting a test message to police, fire, and EMS departments. The county also will test the wireless emergency notification system, which activates cell phones, mobile devices, and email in the event of an emergency.
