Martinsville to sound Tornado sirens for drill


The City of Martinsville will participate in the statewide tornado drill by sounding our tornado sirens for the full 3 minutes, on March 21 at 9:45 am.

The benefits of the drill is to test emergency plans and to allow our citizens to think about where they may shelter in the event of a real tornado. During an actual tornado, the tornado siren system will alert our 9 sirens to sound an audible alarm for 3 minutes. This allows our citizens to hear what the sirens will sound like for the full 3 minutes. Please note this is just a drill.
