Tornado Exercise: Fairfax Prepares Day 9

day 9 iconTornadoes can impact our community. It’s important to know what to do in the event a tornado approaches our area and what to do after one may hit us.

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.

Exclamation point iconTHE 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?
