The Oakland County Homeland Security Division will conduct a test of the Outdoor Warming System sirens Wednesday, April 15th at 1pm during Weather Awareness Month.
According to the National Weather Service, "Americans live in the most severe weather-prone country on earth. Each year, Americans cope with an average of 10,000 thunderstorms, 2,500 floods, 1,000 tornadoes, and an average of 6 deadly hurricanes. Potentially deadly weather impacts every American. Some 90% of all presidentially declared disasters are weather related, leading to around 500 deaths per year and nearly $14 billion in damage."
As a cooperative venture between the National Weather Service and Oakland County Homeland Security Division, the Oakland County Early Weather Warning Program is designed to provide timely notification of severe weather conditions to persons and agencies. The goal of the program is to reduce personal injuries and property damage as a result of severe weather.
By using appropriate equipment and personnel, persons and agencies are immediately alerted of severe weather conditions by two major notifications systems:
Tone Alert Receiver System
This is an indoor warning device that provides a voice broadcast of current weather related conditions. It will advise those with a tone alert receiver of severe weather watches, warnings, and updates.
Outdoor Warning Siren System
This is an outdoor warning device that provides a county wide three minute steady tone alert. The sirens are activated for Tornado Warnings (tornado sighted or strongly indicated on radar) or Severe Thunderstorm Warnings with 70 mph winds or greater.
Mark your calendars to remind you of this test of the outdoor warning system. For more information, please visit www.oakgov.com

Waterford, MI - On Monday, March 9, 2015, the Waterford Township Board of Trustees adopted a Resolution calling for the Pension Board of the Township Police and Fire Retirement System to immediately retire Police Chief Daniel T. McCaw.
The Resolution was based on a provision of Michigan’s Fire Fighters and Police Officers Retirement Act (Public Act 345 of 1937) under which the Police and Fire Retirement System and its Pension Board were created and operate. That provision provides for the Pension Board to retire a member of the retirement system that is at least 60 years old upon the written application of the legislative body, which in Waterford is the Township Board of Trustees.
Chief McCaw, who has been on paid administrative leave for many months, recently reached age 60. In the Resolution, the Township Board thanked and expressed its appreciation to the Chief for his many years of service to the Township and its residents, and wished him well in retirement.
The Township looks forward to providing the best law enforcement services possible to its residents under a new Chief working with the dedicated and hardworking officers of the our Police Department.
Join us Wednesday, April 15th at 6pm in the Town Hall Auditorium 5200 Civic Center Dr. for a Town Hall Meeting regarding Safety Paths.
