Tornado Prepared

Tornadoes can happen any time of year in Oklahoma, but tornado season officially started March 15th and runs through June 15th.

Especially during severe weather it is a good idea to downloaded a weather app that will alert you when to take shelter. You should also have a family plan and put together an emergency kit.

The emergency kit should have enough supplies for each member of your family to survive on for 3-5 days . If you have a storm shelter or safe room, you could put some of the following items in a plastic container and store them in the shelter.

Here is a list of suggested items to keep in your emergency kit:

  • One gallon of water per person, per day
  • Around 2,000 calories of non-perishable food per person, per day
  • A mechanical can opener
  • First-aid supplies to handle minor injuries, including splints, suture kit, antibacterial creams, bandages, and antihistamine
  • Hand-crank or battery-operated radio, preferably a NOAA weather radio
  • A week’s worth of all prescription medications
  • Hygiene items such as toothpaste, shampoo, and feminine products
  • Copies of important documents in a waterproof container; be sure to include driver’s licenses, birth certificates, social security cards, and insurance cards
  • Blankets
  • Flashlights and extra batteries
  • Cell phone charger
  • A minimal amount of money in small bills
  • An extra credit card
  • Emergency contact list, including names, telephone numbers, and addresses
  • If you have children, include items to entertain them, such as coloring books, cards, or board games
  • If you have an infant, be sure to include diapers, formula, and anything else you’ll need
  • If you have pets, their leash and/or carrier and pet food & water
  • Spare set of keys to vehicles

While nothing can guarantee your safety during a thunderstorm or tornado, being prepared can make all the difference. Before and after severe weather it is understandable to experience panic, but being prepared and staying calm will help you respond quicker, help you make the right decisions, and possibly save lives.

  • Kitchens and bathrooms should always be spotless.

In the Bathrooms:

  • Wipe down the shower & tub area after each use.
  • Replace shower curtains and keep them clean.

In the Bedrooms:

  • Depersonalize bedrooms and decorate in a neutral scheme.

  • Closets should be organized and remove unnecessary items and put them in storage.

Outside:

  • Paint exterior entrance doors and clean hardware, knockers, lamps and mailboxes.  Make sure the doorbell is in working order.
  • Fix and paint garage doors if necessary.  Doors should open easily.
  • Put out a new  bright colorful doormat.  Use flowering plants to dress up the yard, walkway, front porch and patio.
