What to do in case of a Tornado

Now that we are in the midst of Tornado season and we saw the devastation a tornado can do in Joplin, MO. We need to discuss with our Au Pairs what to do in case the sirens go off and there is a tornado watch. Tornados are really a Midwest phenomenon, it is what put Kansas on the map with the story of the Wizard of Oz. Have a plan for your family as to what you do in case of a tornado warning, make sure your Au pair understands what is expected of her and tell her what to do if you the host parents are not home. Tornados can strike at any time of day, but luckily they give us a little time to prepare so it is important to go over your families procedures before the storm hits. If you do not have a basement to go to then explain what is the safest place in your house, Usually a bathroom away from windows. Make sure your au pair always has her cell phone within reach. Stay safe
