Procedure for Dealing with a Tornado or Severe Weather

  • Stay indoors, be alert to falling objects.
  • Proceed to the designated shelter.
  • Classrooms will have a diagram posted showing where the designated shelters are located.
  • If you are outside, lie flat on the ground in a depression and cover the back of your head and neck with your hands.
  • Do not seek cover in an automobile or under a tree.
  • Stay away from windows, mirrors, glass, and unsecured objects such as filing cabinets or bookcases.
  • Do not use elevators.
  • If requested, assist persons with disabilities to the safest area on the same floor.
  • Remain in the safe area until the “all clear” has been given.

Planning includes identifying the appropriate place in your building to seek shelter should a tornado occur.
