Tornado Season Begins in March
JLab has many weather radios distributed around the site, and these sound an alarm when triggered by a National Weather Service alert. In addition, the JLab Tornado Warning Siren alerts workers who maybe outside. When you hear the alert, go immediately to the nearest severe wind shelter area. These areas are well marked and are generally in the strongest parts of the buildings, away from windows. If you are not sure where the nearest severe wind take shelter areas are in buildings you frequently visit, you can find them on each building evacuation map. If you are stuck outside and cannot safely get to a sturdy structure in the event of imminent severe weather, you can lie down in a low-lying area, such as a ditch. Note that the JLab Tornado Warning Siren is tested the first working Friday of every month at 10:30 a.m.; no response is required for these scheduled functional tests.
Also consider downloading one of the many free weather apps available for your smartphone. These apps can alert you to severe weather in your local area, wherever you roam.
