Campus Shield Exercise Initiative
The Operation Sudden School Storm – A Tornado Response Tabletop Exercise is part of the national Campus Shield Exercise Initiative.
It is early May and the severe weather associated with a cold front moving through the region prompts the local Forecast Office of the National Weather Service to issue a Tornado Watch for the region from 4:00AM until 12:00PM.
At 10:11AM, meteorologists at the National Weather Service notice what appears to be the formation of a tornado on their Doppler weather radar. They immediately issue a Tornado Warning.
Over the next several hours, numerous Tornado Warnings are issued throughout the area.
Your school or school district can participate in this exercise for $600.
