Emergency preparedness tips:
Designate the safest spot in your house in case of a tornado, which are often spawned by the outer rain bands of hurricanes. This is usually the basement of your home. If you do not have a basement, go to the room closest to the center of the building, away from any windows.
Always maintain battery-powered smoke alarms in your home and check the batteries twice per year. It is suggested you check when the time changes in the spring and fall, as this is an easy way to remember to check them. Have an escape plan ready and a designated place to meet outside your home - make sure all family members are aware of this plan.
Incidents with hazardous materials can occur rapidly with train derailments or leaks in business facilities. If you think there are dangerous fumes in your area, stay inside, shut your windows, turn off your AC unit, and listen for emergency notifications on the radio or television.
