Red Cross App Helps Families Prepare for Tornado Emergencies
Spring brings beautiful flowers, sunshine… and sometimes dangerous weather. Tornado season is upon us. Do you have the tools, resources, and information you need to keep you and your family safe? The American Red Cross has a Tornado App for iPhone and Android users. You can get your home ready for a tornado with the official Tornado app. It contains interactive quizzes and advice on how to be ready for a tornado. Some features of the app include: step-by-step instructions to help you know what to do even if cell towers and TVs are down; audible sirens that sound even when the app is closed; a Red Cross map showing open shelters; and steps on how to assemble an emergency kit for your family in the event of a power outage or evacuation. Being prepared and armed with resources will help keep you, your family, and neighbors safe during tornado season.
