    Explanation
    A weather radio is used to notify us when a Tornado Warning is in effect. This device is specifically designed to receive weather alerts and broadcasts from the National Weather Service. It provides real-time updates on severe weather conditions, including tornado warnings, allowing people to take necessary precautions and seek shelter immediately. Unlike relying on social media platforms like Facebook, which may not always be reliable or timely, a weather radio ensures that we receive accurate and timely information directly from the official source.

    The banner alert for a Tornado Warning should run until the Tornado Warning is ALL CLEAR. This means that the alert should continue to be displayed until the threat of the tornado has passed and it is safe for people to resume normal activities. The duration of the alert can vary depending on the specific situation and the guidance provided by the relevant authorities. It is important to prioritize the safety of individuals and ensure that they are informed and prepared for any potential danger.

    During a Tornado Warning, it's a good idea to

    • A.

      Read the Alt I Screen

    • B.

      Make sure flashlights are out and working

    • C.

      Go outside and look for funnel clouds

    • D.

      Close the blinds

    Correct Answer(s)
    A. Read the Alt I Screen
    B. Make sure flashlights are out and working
    D. Close the blinds
    Explanation
    During a tornado warning, it is important to prioritize safety measures. Reading the Alt I Screen is crucial as it provides important information about the altitude and attitude of the aircraft, which is essential for the pilot to maintain control. Making sure flashlights are out and working is necessary in case of a power outage during the tornado. Closing the blinds helps to protect against flying debris and shattered glass. Going outside and looking for funnel clouds is dangerous and should be avoided, as it puts individuals at risk of being caught in the tornado's path.

    Rate this question:

  • 7. 

    During a Tornado Warning, where would you go to take cover?

    • A.

      Elevators

    • B.

      Underground parking lot

    • C.

      Stairwell between first and second floor

    • D.

      The basement hallway

    Correct Answer
    D. The basement hallway
    Explanation
    During a tornado warning, it is recommended to take cover in a basement hallway. Basements provide a lower and more secure location, reducing the risk of being affected by strong winds and debris. Hallways within the basement offer additional protection as they are usually reinforced and away from windows, which can shatter during a tornado. This location ensures maximum safety and minimizes the chances of injury.

    • A.

      Security

    • B.

      Plant Engineering

    • C.

      Paging

    • D.

      Nursing Supervisor

    Correct Answer
    B. Plant Engineering
    Explanation
    Plant Engineering is responsible for calling the "ALL CLEAR" for a Tornado Warning. This is because they are in charge of the maintenance and operation of the plant's systems and equipment, including monitoring weather conditions and ensuring the safety of the facility. They would have the knowledge and authority to assess the situation and determine when it is safe to give the all-clear signal after a tornado warning has been issued.
