1. If you have a storm shelter, register its location with the City.
Registering your shelter's location will let rescue workers know you have a shelter and where to find it if a disaster covers it with debris. Call the Action Center at 405 297-2535 to register your shelter.
2. Have regular tornado drills with your family.
Designate an area in your home as a shelter, and regularly practice having your family go there as if there were a tornado. Make sure your family knows the difference between a "tornado watch" and a "tornado warning."
3. Have disaster supplies on hand.
- Flashlight and extra batteries (do not use candles or open flame devices!)
- Portable, battery operated radio and extra batteries
- First aid kit and manual
- Emergency food and water
- Non-electric can opener
- Essential medicines
- Cash and credit cards
- Sturdy shoes
- A set of spare keys to vehicles
- Personal identification
- Camera with several rolls of film (for documenting your damage)
4. Develop an emergency communications plan.
Have a plan for getting back together in case family members are separated from one another during a tornado. Ask an out-of-state relative or friend to act as the family contact. After a disaster, it's often easier to call long distance. Make sure everyone in the family knows the name, address and phone number of the contact person. (Source: okc.gov)
