Tornado Safety Tips

 

Important Measures To Take provided by the CDC

Take a few minutes with your family to develop a tornado emergency plan. Sketch a floor plan of where you live, or walk through each room and discuss where and how to seek shelter.

Show a second way to exit from each room or area. If you need special equipment, such as a rope ladder, mark where it is located.

Make sure everyone understands the siren warning system, if there’s such a system in your area.

Mark where your first-aid kit and fire extinguishers are located.

Mark where the utility switches or valves are located so they can be turned off–if time permits–in an emergency.

Teach your family how to administer basic first aid, how to use a fire extinguisher, and how and when to turn off water, gas, and electricity in your home.

Learn the emergency dismissal policy for your child’s school.

Make sure your children know—
What a tornado is
What tornado watches and warnings are
What county or parish they live in (warnings are issued by county or parish)
How to take shelter, whether at home or at school.
