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)
