TORNADO or SEVERE WEATHER WARNING 

 WHEN EMERGENCY SIRENS SOUND  

  1. Remain calm.
  2. GO INSIDE immediately or STAY INSIDE.
  3. Be alert for falling objects.
  4. STAY AWAY FROM WINDOWS, MIRRORS, AND UNSECURED  OBJECTS (bookcases, file cabinets, etc.)
  5. If possible, PROCEED TO A BELOW GROUND-LEVEL OR CENTRAL HALLWAY OF THE BUILDING.
  6. DO NOT USE THE ELEVATOR. Use the stairs.
  7. Assist persons with disabilities to a safe area on the same floor.
  8. If possible, monitor the National Weather Service (NWS).
  9. AN END TO AN ALARM SIREN DOES NOT MEAN THE WARNING IS OVER. A SECOND SIREN IS NOT AN ALL CLEAR; INSTEAD IT MAY INDICATE AN ADDITIONAL WEATHER WARNING.
  10. Remain in the safe area until the “all clear” is received or the NWS weather warning expires
