Do1Thing in September: Be Informed
Make sure everyone in your household can receive, understand, and act on information received in an emergency.
Your community may have outdoor warning sirens (also called tornado sirens) to warn you in an emergency. These sirens are meant to let people who are outside know they should go indoors.
Weather can change very quickly. Severe weather may strike when people are sleeping or unaware of the forecast.
The way emergency information is sent out in your community may not work for everyone. If you don’t speak English well, or if you use an assistive device to speak or hear, make a plan now.
