weather safety

To protect yourself in bad weather:

  • If possible, stay indoors during bad weather.
  • Discuss with your parents the safe areas of the house.
  • Stay away from glass windows and doors.
  • Safe places are usually hallways, closets and bathrooms.
  • If you are outdoors and the weather turns bad, go straight home.
  • If your home is not close, go to a safe place and call your parents.
  • Watch for falling branches and trees.
  • If there is lightning, don't stand under trees, try to go into a safe building.
  • Stay indoors until the bad weather is over.
