Tornado Emergency Readiness Planning for Schools.
Wisconsin State Dept. of Public Instruction, Madison.
A place of safe refuge in the event of violent natural forces or a tornado should be included in the design of all new school buildings. Existing a school buildings should be analyzed by the architect, contractor, or engineer to determine if a safe place exists or if one can be readily adapted. Most criteria for fallout shelters are the same for natural disaster shelters and free technical assistance is available through local and state civil defense agencies. Tornado alarm systems should be different or a variation of the regular fire alarm and a secondary system should be available in case the power supply is disrupted. (LD)
