It is Severe Weather Week and this week we will be sending out daily communications focused on different topics surrounding severe weather. Today we are going to focus on being Prepared. There are many things we need to do to be prepared, today we are going to focus on three main points that will help us be prepared in the event of severe weather. This information comes from Weather.gov  which has lots of information that will help protect you and your family.
- Identify the severe weather hazards
- Severe thunderstorms can produce tornadoes, damaging wind, large hail and heavy rain that can produce flash flooding
- What is your plan
- I have attached the current IFS Emergency Action Plan-Please review and identify what to do in the event of severe weather. We will update the current plan once construction/remodeling are complete.
- If you’re working in the field, every facility/job site should have established and documented Emergency Action Plans for your review.
- Have a plan in place for your home and family.
- Practice your plan
- As stated earlier; please review the IFS Emergency Action Plan and identify where to go in the event of severe weather. On Tuesday, March 15, 2016 at 1:30 p.m. there is a statewide tornado drill and employees at 1055 Cassens will be expected to participate.
- Practice your plan with your family, so they know what to do in the event of severe weather.
