During an Emergency

During an Emergency


In the event of a Tornado Warning residents will hear a 3 to 5 minute steady signal of the sirens. When you hear the sirens during bad weather, go indoors and seek shelter in the most interior room in your home or office.

Areas to Avoid


You should avoid the outside walls and windows. An interior bathroom, closet, or other room is generally the safest location. Cover yourself with pillows or get under heavy furniture for protection. If you have access to a radio or television, turn it on to a local channel to listen for essential emergency information.

All local channels will interrupt programming to issue Tornado Warnings and advise you where the tornado is located. Please do not call local fire or police agencies to ask why the sirens are sounding unless immediate assistance is needed.
