SOUTH CAROLINA WILL OBSERVE SEVERE WEATHER AWARENESS WEEK MARCH 8 TO
MARCH 14, 2015. THIS YEAR, SEVERE WEATHER AWARENESS WEEK IS
SPONSORED BY THE NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE, SOUTH CAROLINA EMERGENCY
MANAGEMENT DIVISION, AND THE SOUTH CAROLINA BROADCASTERS
ASSOCIATION. THIS ANNUAL EVENT GIVES SOUTH CAROLINIANS AN
OPPORTUNITY TO EDUCATE THEMSELVES OR REVIEW THEIR KNOWLEDGE OF
SEVERE WEATHER HAZARDS AND SAFETY RULES.

THE ANNUAL STATEWIDE TORNADO DRILL WILL BE HELD ON WEDNESDAY,
MARCH 11 2015 WITH AN ALTERNATE DATE OF FRIDAY, MARCH 13. THE
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE WILL ISSUE A TEST TORNADO WARNING USING THE
ACTUAL EAS CODE FOR THIS DRILL.  THERE WILL BE NO TEST WATCH.  THE
DRILL WILL BE CONDUCTED AT 9AM.  SCHOOLS AND ALL OTHER PARTICIPANTS
ARE ENCOURAGED TO BEGIN THEIR DRILL BY 910AM IF THEIR WEATHER RADIOS
DO NOT ALARM; PLEASE MAKE SURE YOUR WEATHER RADIOS ARE IN THE
CORRECT ALARM CONFIGURATION.  AGAIN: A TEST TORNADO WARNING WILL BE
ISSUED AROUND 9AM USING THE EAS TOR CODE .   MEDIA WHO WISH TO OPT
OUT OF THE DRILL SHOULD TAKE THE NECESSARY MEASURES TO PREVENT THE
TORNADO WARNING FROM ACTIVATING THEIR SYSTEMS.

THE MAIN PURPOSE OF THIS DRILL IS FOR SCHOOLS, PARTNERS, THE GENERAL
PUBLIC, AND OTHERS TO TEST THEIR TORNADO SAFETY PLANS AND
COMMUNICATION SYSTEMS. WITH SEVERAL DEADLY TORNADO EVENTS IN GEORGIA
AND SOUTH CAROLINA DURING THE PAST FEW YEARS, IT IS IMPERATIVE FOR
EVERYONE TO HAVE TORNADO SAFETY PROCEDURES IN PLACE AND TO ENSURE
THEY HAVE A SAFE LOCATION TO GO TO IN THE EVENT OF A TORNADO
OCCURRING.

THE NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE, SOUTH CAROLINA STATE EMERGENCY
MANAGEMENT DIVISION, AND THE SOUTH CAROLINA BROADCASTERS ASSOCIATION
HOPE YOU WILL PARTICIPATE IN THE TORNADO DRILL. IF IT IS NOT
PRACTICAL TO ACTUALLY EXERCISE YOUR PLAN AT THE DESIGNATED DATE AND
TIME, THEN PLEASE TAKE THE TIME TO THINK ABOUT WHERE YOUR SAFEST
LOCATION IS AND REVIEW YOUR PLAN FOR EFFICIENCY.
