Tomorrow there will be a statewide tornado drill at 130 pm. I challenge each of you to practice your tornado safety plan at that time. If you are uncertain what to do, please reference the following link and set a plan of action for home, work, or even travelling in your vehicle! http://www.ready.gov/severe-weather

As amateur operators, we have a slight advantage where communications are concerned during disasters, but are we prepared to act to protect life and property? Safety plans are for everyone!

By the way, amateur radio will be practicing preparedness by activating local skywarn nets across the region tomorrow at the time of the drill. If you can, check into your local net with your call sign, location and whether or not the sirens sounded in your area. Greene County Skywarn will be activated on the 146.64 with a pl tone of 162.2.
