Bill: Mandatory tornado drills at schools

MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- Schools would have to conduct at least two tornado drills a year under bill moving through the state Legislature.

Current Wisconsin law requires schools to conduct a fire drill once every month, but there's no provision requiring drills for a tornado or other hazardous incident.

The bipartisan bill also requires schools to keep a record of each tornado or hazard drill for at least seven years.

The Assembly's Committee on Homeland Security and State Preparedness is set to vote on the bill a week from today.
