Tornado Season - Be Prepared
In Alberta, tornado season runs May through September with most activity between mid-June to early August. It is important to know what to do before the threat is near. Here are a few tips to help you stay safe:
- Bring everyone indoors, including pets if safe to do,
- Grab your emergency supplies, and
- Take shelter in a small interior windowless room on the lowest level possible, below ground is best.
