Severe Weather Procedures

If a Tornado Warning is announced:

v   Take shelter immediately by moving to the basement of the Church. The construction of  the Church designates the basement as a storm shelter. All floors, outer and interior     walls of the sanctuary are concrete slabs or masonry block. 

v   Move quickly, “DO NOT RUN”

v   Move to an interior room away from windows – to an enclosed room, kitchen or hallway

v   Do not use the elevators

v   Assist disabled or elderly personnel or those who may require assistance

v   Shelter in a safe place until you hear an announcement from a safety committee member that it is safe to return to your area

v   Once you’ve situated yourself in the safest place you can find, protect your face and head, and stay where you are until an all clear is given

v   The family center should be utilized only as a last resort
