A Step by Step Guide

How to Use this Guide:
Would you know what to do if an emergency occurred?  Would your child, alone at home after school, know the proper procedures to follow if the weather suddenly turned threatening?

This booklet has been designed to help your household prepare for and respond intelligently to severe weather and other emergencies which might arise in our area.

No amount of preventative measures can avert a tornado or crippling winter storm.  In these instances, the uninformed are at the most risk.

Please invest 30 minutes of your family's time in working through this book together, so that everyone in your household is prepared to act confidently and correctly, should an emergency arise.  There are spaces throughout the book that you will fill in with important information to personalize this guide to your own circumstances.  Once you have made this book your own, it should be kept in a prominent, accessible location.  If you move to another residence, revise it.  And do review it occasionally, perhaps every New Year's Day, as a commitment to each other's health and safety.

Preparedness for emergency could make all the difference in the world to you and those you love.  This book will help you make that difference.
