Ohio is conducting a statewide tornado drill on Wednesday, March 22, at 9:50 a.m. All Kent State University campuses will be participating in this test. We will broadcast a recorded tornado education message through university speaker systems and IP (Internet Protocol) phones throughout buildings on all Kent State campuses.
This is only a test of the mass notification systems, and no shelter-in-place activities are required.
The Kent Campus tests the tornado sirens on the first Wednesday of every month at 11 a.m. and on the third Wednesday at 6:30 p.m.
