Basic Sheltering Rules
We encourage every citizen to Shelter In Place in the event of severe weather. Seek a location within your current location rather than try to get to a remote shelter. Seldom is there enough time to go to a shelter other than the one in your own location.

Don't forget the basic rules for effective sheltering during a tornado or other high-wind event:
• Inside beats outside
• Below ground beats above ground
• Lower floor beats upper floors
• In all instances, place yourself in an interior room with multiple walls between you and the exterior.

We recommend our citizens employ at least three means of hazardous weather notification & information:
• Outdoors - Warning Sirens
• Indoors - NOAA Weather Radio
• Cell Phones - Weather Notification Service
