West Plains Police Department
Tornado Warning Drill
The West Plains Emergency Management Department will begin monthly Tornado Drills starting in June 2019. The Tornado Warnings will take place on the second Wednesday of every month at 11:00 AM.
These Drills will provide information that the Tornado Sirens are effectively working in the City to make certain our residents and visitors are adequately warned when impeding weather approaches the City. These tests will be conducted on a monthly basis throughout the year.
The first of these drills will take place on Wednesday, June 12, 2019 at 11:00 AM. If for some reason there is severe weather in the area on the day of the drill the Tornado Sirens will not be activated.
If you live near a City Warning Siren and you do not believe the system sounded at the time of the Drills the City is asking you to contact the Police Department so the location may be checked.
