Attendees will learn concepts of how to better implement safety measures for themselves, their family, and their organizations to prepare for tornado season.

Tornadoes can strike anywhere in the United States with little or no warning. They are capable of causing significant loss of life and billions of dollars in damages. It is important that every community be prepared by understanding tornadoes and their associated dangers.
