In a coordinated effort, Governor Mike DeWine and the Ohio Committee for Severe Weather Awareness (OCSWA) recognize November 12-18, 2023 as Winter Safety Awareness Week.
“Understanding weather threats that may impact Ohio will put residents at an advantage to be better prepared,” said Governor DeWine. “Winter Safety Awareness Week is a great opportunity for citizens, schools, and businesses to prepare in advance for the potential harsh effects of winter weather.”
Winter can be a fun and exciting time of the year to go sledding, skiing, and ice skating, but winter can also bring snow, ice, blizzard conditions, freezing rain, and flooding (from heavy rain or snow melt); it’s not unheard of to have severe thunderstorms, or even tornadoes occur in the winter months. As winter approaches, residents are encouraged to enjoy the most wonderful time of the year, but also to be prepared for the harsher side of the season. Below are some tips to help you prepare for the not so pleasant side of winter. Knowing the potential impacts of these hazards will help you be better prepared.

To enhance citizen awareness during emergencies, Dublin residents are encouraged to sign up for the ALERT Franklin County mass notification and warning system and Dublin’s Smart911 community notification system.
Dublin’s newest emergency communications tool, Smart911, provides localized alerts specific to Dublin. Smart911 enables residents to sign up for severe weather alerts that are automated and sent to registrants immediately after the National Weather Service issues a severe weather warning for the Dublin area. Residents can also opt-in to receive Dublin community announcements.
ALERT Franklin County enables officials to provide critical information directly to residents countywide via text message, phone and e-mail as emergencies happen. Individuals and businesses whose information is listed in the white and yellow pages are already included in the ALERT Franklin County system and will receive emergency notifications through landlines only.
Both systems are customizable so residents can choose what kind of community notifications they want to receive and how they would like to receive them.
