2022 Severe Weather Awareness Week Is April 4–8

According to the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources, Minnesota experiences an average of 28 tornadoes per year. A record was set in 2010, when 113 tornadoes touched down across the state. Minnesota’s Severe Weather Awareness Week is April 4–8, and the Minnesota Department of Public Safety (MNDPS) and the Golden Valley Fire Department want to ensure residents are educated and prepared if the worst happens.

Prepare Your Family

  • Create an emergency plan with your entire family so everyone knows what to do in the event of severe weather, like a tornado.
  • Practice your family plan during the state-wide tornado drills April 7. Use this time to build an emergency kit.
  • Check with places your family spends time, such as schools, workplaces, and churches, to learn what their emergency plans are. Share these plans with your entire family, and talk about what you would do if your family was not together during a disaster.

The City of Golden Valley will participate in state-wide tornado drills April 7, at 1:45 and 6:45 pm. The City will also test its emergency notification system, GV Emergency, April 4, 6 pm.
