  • Have a safe place ready.
    • Most interior room of your home on the lowest level. No windows or doors to the outside. If you live in a mobile home, local storm shelters are the safest place.
  • Build an emergency kit.
    • Kits should include water, food, a flashlight, medications, a phone charger, personal documents, extra shoes, extra batteries, a first aid kit, cash, pet supplies, a contact list, and car keys. Put all the supplies in a bag or backpack and store in your safe place.
