Having a reliable source of weather information is vital when making a safety plan. Knowing what your triggers are is also important. What are the strongest winds you can withstand before damage occurs to your structure? How far away does lightning need to strike before an evacuation is necessary for an event? All these criteria need to be established ahead of time, and once it is, you can put your plan into action.
