TORNADO PREPAREDNESS

 

If your immediate area is under a tornado warning, you and your family should seek a safe shelter immediately!

Go to a pre-designated safe shelter such as a basement or storm cellar etc. If there is no cellar, find the center of a room on the first floor of the structure (house or building), a closet or interior hallway is fine, just stay away from corners, doors & windows. Always have as many walls as you can find between yourself & the outside.
