IEMA Hosts Tornado Drill to Highlight PrepareAthon

Updated:

ILLINOIS -- When it comes to safety preparing for severe weather is another concern and one you need to plan for.  That's why The Illinois Emergency Management Agency acted out their tornado plan today. Their drill was part of PrepareAthon, a national day dedicated to prepping homes and businesses for severe weather.

One obstacle the IEMA office on Outer Park Drive has to overcome was the set up of their building; multiple stories and no basement. With some planning, they found the safest place for employees to go. Now they want other organizations to follow their example.

Millions of people nationwide chose to use this day to get prepared.
If you missed this PrepareAthon there is another one planned for this Fall on September 30th encouraging Illinoisans to get ready for winter.
