County-wide tornado drill planned for Tuesday

CATLETTSBURG — The Boyd County Emergency Management Agency will conduct a county-wide tornado warning siren test at 11 a.m. Tuesday.

The EMA is requesting that all local schools, businesses and residents practice their tornado emergency plans during the test, which will last for 10 minutes.

The siren tone will be different than the one heard for fire calls within communities. The warnings will consist of three minutes of the sirens’ highest peaks, followed by three-minute pauses, then three more minutes of siren sounds.

Citizens should refrain from calling 911 during the drill.

The sirens are located at the Westwood, Summit-Ironville, Cannonsburg and East Fork fire departments, and the Marathon Marine Repair Terminal in Catlettsburg.
