Hi, I’m Mary Oquendo. A couple of weeks ago as I was watching the rain fall in sheets from my deck, my phone’s emergency alert went off. SEEK SHELTER NOW TORNADO WARNING. At first, I was like: “Tornado warning, this is Connecticut, we don’t get tornadoes.” But then my training kicked in and I herded my dogs and myself into the designated safe part of my home.

Let me give you the tools to make effective plans to prepare for emergency and disaster situations.
