Thunderstorm Safety Tips

Posted by on Tuesday, August 9, 2016

Every year there are thousands of thunderstorms across North America. It is important to keep yourself updated on the weather forecast, especially if you will be leaving for an extended period outdoors.

During the Storm:

  • Move to a sturdy building or car.
  • Do Not take shelter under isolated trees.
  • Get out of boats and away from water.
  • Unplug appliances.
  • Do not take a bath or shower.

If you are outside with no shelter available place your hands on your knees with your head between them. Make yourself the smallest target possible; minimize your contact with the ground.
