PostHeaderIcon Severe Weather Preparedness Week

Governor Mike Pence has proclaimed March 16th  through 22nd, 2014 as Severe Weather Preparedness Week in Indiana. The National Weather Service will conduct statewide and local test of the tornado sirens on Thursday, March 20th at 10:15 AM and 7:35 PM EDT.  If weather postpones the tests, make-tests are Friday, March 21 at the same time listed.  This means if we have severe weather on Thursday, you should respond to the sirens as a real event. The Emergency Management Agency encourages you to practice a tornado drill in your office.  It would also be a great opportunity to practice your family plan at home that evening. Thank you,Director Mike MartinBoone County Emergency Management Agency1905 Indianapolis AveLebanon, IN 46052765-483-4428

PostHeaderIcon Life Threatening Weather Possibilities

Indiana weather is upon us and we may face life threatening weather beginning Saturday January 4 through January 8 or so. 

Heavy snow and wind will be followed by a deep cold.

Please see below excerpts of a message we sent to all county employees: 

Make sure you prepare your home and your family in the event you are at work for an extended time.  Make sure you have necessary supplies in your vehicle when you work:  shovel, heat packs, blanket, boots, gloves, face mask, cell phone charger, some food and water and maybe a thermos of hot drink, etc..   Have these items and more in an "Everyday Carry Bag" in your car and office.

 Does your significant other have one in the vehicle they travel in?  Does your college student have one for their dorm room?  It is a strong consideration for every day, much less weather like we are facing. Sign up for Nixle Emergency Messaging on the Sheriff’s Web Page ( to receive emergency text and email messages for Boone County.   We are forewarned of this event, let us make sure we are prepared. Sheriff Ken Campbell
