Safe Areas for Weather Emergencies

In case of a weather emergency, please observe the following safety tips:

  1. Assist the disabled in moving to a safe area.
  2. If outdoors, move quickly to ground floor of a building or seek refuge in a ditch. Caution: Always avoid power or utility lines and trees as they can be energized. Know your assembly location.
  3. If in an automobile, stop in the safest place available, preferably away from power lines and trees. Stop as quickly as safety permits, exit the vehicle for appropriate shelter.
