Talk to your employer about emergency plans for the building where you work. Think about other places that you and family members regularly spend time, like your child’s school. Talk to administrators at those places about their emergency plans as well.

Ways to be safe at work and school:

  • Make sure evacuation routes and tornado shelter locations are marked on a map and posted in the building.
  • Hold emergency training and drills.
  • Help create an emergency kit for the facility.
  • Know where fire extinguishers and Automatic External Defibrillators (AEDs) are located.
Make sure emergency procedures are in place for your workplace or school.
