60-second safety: Keep helmets handy in emergency

Follow Daily Journal:

This safety series is designed to help you prepare your family for life’s emergencies — big and small — and keep you as safe and healthy as possible when Mother Nature or life throws the unexpected your way. Take the next minute to help make yourself and your family safer.

Find your helmets.

Tornado season has arrived in Indiana, so it’s time to think about what you can do to protect your family and yourself if severe weather heads your way. If you have a bike helmet, construction hard hat or any type of helmet around your house, gather them up and put them close to your tornado safe place, especially if you have children.

Not only can wearing helmets help prevent head injuries during a tornado, it also allows you to use your hands to hold onto loved ones instead of covering your head. And if you have a baby, plan to put them in an infant car seat to help provide extra protection.

Remember, spending one minute gathering helmets now could save lives later.
