Emergency Warning System

Bowling Green State University, the City of Bowling Green, and Wood County utilize an emergency warning system to provide residents with immediate notification of impending emergencies or disasters, primarily tornadoes.

If a tornado is sighted in the County, the Wood County Sheriff’s Office will activate the audible outdoor siren system.  BGSU Police dispatchers will also send a message via AlertBG when the sirens are activated.  Everyone should go directly to the nearest tornado shelter area until the warning period given by the National Weather Service is over.
