THINGS TO KNOW TODAY, sharing from the OKC Fire Dept
• There has been plenty of early warning about the possibility of severe weather today, including potential tornadoes. Now it is up to you to be prepared.
• There are no public storm shelters in OKC. Watch this if you’re not sure what to do when tornado sirens activate – http://www.okc.gov/prepare/#pubshelters
• Fire Stations in Oklahoma City are NOT public shelters.
• If you hear a tornado siren in OKC, it means that there is a threat nearby or approaching your location. Take shelter immediately!
• Hail is possible today – Do NOT park under bridges or overpasses. This causes a very dangerous traffic problem and delays first responders who are trying to get to people in need of help.
• Power lines down – Do not drive over downed power lines. Do not touch downed power lines or anything else they are touching (such as fences or cars). Stay completely away from downed lines.
• Do not drive into high water. If you can’t see the street below, you should not drive through it.
If you still have things you would like to donate, please bring them over or contact us & we can make arrangements to come pick them up.
We would love volunteers to help today!
Thank you to all the neighbors that provided donations! We have a great start to our ‘Dream Big’ fund! We even had people who didn’t find anything they needed, but still provided a donation to our worthwhile cause 🙂
