Operation Western Winds


Operation Western Winds is a joint weather exercise in western Erie County.  This exercise is designed to test the emergency response system to an extreme weather event.  

May 31, 2015 will be the 30 year anniversery of the F4 tornado that affected many residents in Erie County.  In an effort to ensure that local responders are prepared to respond to another such event an Exercise Planning Team has been formed to plan an exercise to test the system.  The actual exercise will take place on May 30, 2015 with start, and end, times to be determined.  The days events will end with a non-denominational memorial service.

Any agency/organization that would like to participate is invited to send 1-2 representatives to the Initial Planning Meeting (IPM).  At the IPM we will discuss the scope of the exercise, goals, key objectives and split the group into disciplines for the purpose of effective planning.  

If your agency is interested in attending the IPM please sign-up through this web page (no later than 12/12/14) to ensure adequate space is available.  

For futher information please contact Doug Johnson or Caleb Dixon.
