Tornado Exercise: Fairfax Prepares Day 9
In 2012, we held a three-day emergency exercise around a major fake tornado scenario. The fake tornadoes struck around 8 a.m. in the western part of county near Centreville, Chantilly and Fair Lakes. There were many major (fake) impacts.
THE ASK: Review our series of blog posts from the tornado exercise and ask yourselves the various questions we posed. How would you answer? Are you prepared for a tornado or other incident that could impact us in similar ways?
To report an emergency, call (preferred) or text 9-1-1 (voice and TTY). For non-emergencies, call 703-691-2131, TTY 703-877-3715.
