How to Protect Your Family During A Tornado
Spring almost always brings the threat of storms and tornadoes. When the temperature shifts from cold to warm, the chances of a storm front that could produce a full-blown tornado increase dramatically. Being prepared for this possibility is of the utmost importance.
Here are some safety tips to keep in mind to keep your loved ones safe through any storm:
- Stay informed. Be prepared for changes in the weather that may arise. Staying alert is important when the weather is inclement.
- Preparation is essential. Make sure disaster kit supplies are available and that everyone in the family can quickly locate and grab them. Be ready before disaster strikes.
- Consider how you will communicate. Make a plan in advance of how you will communicate with your family. Select a remote family member to be the point of contact, or make sure you come up with a meeting point for everyone in the family if you are separated.
- Know how to stay safe during the storm. Seek an interior room on the lowest floor of the building if you are at home. Seek safety in a ditch or valley covering your head and neck if you are outdoors.
Knowledge is very powerful in situations like this. Follow these tips to help keep you and your family safe during a disaster.
