Security Tip of the Week

Tornadoes can destroy buildings, flip cars and create deadly flying debris. Tornadoes are violently rotating columns of air that extend from a thunderstorm to the ground. Tornadoes can happen anytime and anywhere, bring intense winds over 200 mph and look like funnels.

If you are under a tornado warning, find safe shelter right away. If you can safely get to a sturdy building, then do so immediately. Go to a safe room, basement, or storm cellar. If you are in a building with no basement, then get to a small interior room on the lowest level. Stay away from windows, doors and outside walls. Do not get under an overpass or bridge. You're safer in a low, flat location. Watch out for flying debris that can cause injury or death. Use your arms to protect your head and neck.

A tornado watch means a tornado is possible. A tornado warning means a tornado is already occurring or will occur soon. Go to your safe place immediately.

Talk about tornadoes with your family so that everyone knows where to go if a tornado warning is issued. Discussing ahead of time helps reduce fear, especially for younger children as well as those who may need assistance walking or who may need the assistance of a walker or wheel chair. Ensure that you develop a plan and practice sheltering for a tornado. 

Check at your workplace and your children's schools and daycare centers to learn about their tornado emergency plans. Every building has different safe places. Make sure you have access to NOAA radio broadcasts, either through streaming an online NOAA radio station, downloading a NOAA radio app in the Apple Store or Google Play, or purchasing a battery-powered or hand-crank NOAA radio. 

The Fairfield Glade Community Club has a tornado warning siren. Do not rely on this as your only form of warning.

At a minimum, you should have the basic supplies listed below in your emergency kit:

•Water: one gallon per person per day (three-day supply for evacuation, two-week supply for home)

•Food: non-perishable, easy-to-prepare items (three-day supply for evacuation, two-week supply for home).


•Battery-powered or hand-crank radio (NOAA Weather Radio, if possible)

•Extra batteries

•Deluxe family first aid kit

•Medications (seven-day supply) and medical items

•Multi-purpose tool

•Sanitation and personal hygiene items

•Copies of personal documents (medication list and pertinent medical information, proof of address, deed/lease to home, passports, birth certificates, insurance policies).
