Statewide Tornado Drill
When: March 19, 2019 09:45 AM until 09:47 AM Eastern Time Zone
The Statewide Tornado Drill is a yearly opportunity to prepare Virginians for tornado emergencies and to test public warning systems. Save the date! The Virginia State Emergency Communications Committee and the National Weather Service will conduct a statewide tornado drill and Emergency Alert System (EAS) test on Tuesday, March 19, 2019, at 9:45 a.m. or on Wednesday, March 20, 2019, at 9:45 a.m. as the backup date if severe weather impacts the Commonwealth of Virginia on March 19. At approximately 9:45 a.m., the National Weather Service will send a test tornado warning over NOAA Weather Radios. This test signal will sound a tone alert, show a test message or flash to indicate a message, simulating what people would hear or see during an actual tornado warning. Local radio stations, TV stations and cable outlets will also broadcast the test message via the Emergency Alert System. To participate, start your own tornado drill when you hear the test signal over NOAA Weather Radio or broadcast media.

Franklin National Night Out
August 3, 2021 06:00 PM - 09:00 PM
The City of Franklin, including several city departments, civic/community groups, and businesses are hosting the City of Franklin’s 2021 National Night Out event at Armory Field on August 3, 2021. National Night Out is designed to bring the community and public safety partners, primarily law enforcement, together to celebrate the successes we have seen over the past year as well as build on the future. Law enforcement cannot prevent crime on its own and therefore we are excited to open this event up to all. This is a great opportunity for communities, neighbors, businesses, and churches to come together to work toward a better tomorrow through civic engagement and building of partnerships. We invite your community, neighborhood group, business, or church, no matter how big or how small, to join us between 6 PM and 9 PM. Bring your chairs, tents, tables, and anything else you may want. Set up an area for your group so that your group can interact among itself but more importantly interact with other groups who come that night. We will have the food, entertainment, and public safety partners present to make it a memorable evening.
