Tornado Safety Initiative: Saving Lives When Tornadoes Strike
Tornadoes are incredibly violent events and sufficient warning is not always possible. People need to be ready to take shelter immediately. FEMA works with its partners to support initiatives that protect people from severe wind events. The agency assesses building damages and identifies lessons learned after tornadoes; funds research on shelter design and construction standards; develops best practices and technical manuals on safe rooms and community shelters; and produces public education materials on tornado preparedness and response.
