Know How to Shelter Safely for Your #SafePlaceSelfie

The #SafePlaceSelfie event is part of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s Weather-Ready Nation along with Federal Emergency Management Agency and other partners to encourage individuals, businesses, and organizations to be ready, responsive, and resilient during extreme weather events. 


To learn more about staying safe and taking shelter click on Ready.gov and take a look at the tips below:

  • The safest locations to seek shelter vary by hazard. Be Informed about the sheltering suggestions for each hazard.
  • There may be situations, depending on your circumstances and the nature of the disaster, when it's simply best to stay where you are and avoid any uncertainty outside by “sheltering in place".
  • The length of time you are required to shelter may be short, such as during a tornado warning, or long, such as during a winter storm or a pandemic. It is important that you stay in shelter until local authorities say it is safe to leave. Additionally, you should take turns listening to radio broadcasts and maintain a 24-hour safety watch.
  • During extended periods of sheltering, you will need to manage water and food supplies to ensure you and your family have the required supplies and quantities. Read more about Managing Water and Managing Food.

Additional guidelines for sheltering in place are available on Ready.gov/shelter.
