Summer is Tornado Season in Alberta, Are You Prepared?

In the Canadian prairies, June is the onset of tornado season. The province of Alberta averages about 16 reported tornadoes per year. With the tragic events in that occurred in Moore, Oklahoma last month, it is important to re-assess our own level of preparedness for violent weather. Due to the relatively little advanced warning prior to the onset of a tornado, being prepared in advance is our best tool to minimize the risk posed by these dangerous storms.

Do you have any of the following?

  • A Family Emergency Plan
    • Designated shelter areas?
    • Backup modes of communication?
    • Designated meeting place if separated during the event?
  • Emergency Kit
    • At home?
    • At work?
    • In your car?
  • Insurance
