Where to Go!
During a Tornado If you are under a tornado WARNING, seek shelter immediately!
If you are in: Then:
A structure (e.g. residence, small Go to a pre-designated shelter area such as a safe room, basement, storm
building, school, nursing home, cellar, or the lowest building level. If there is no basement, go to the center
hospital, factory, shopping center, of an interior room on the lowest level (closet, interior hallway) away from
high-rise building) corners, windows, doors, and outside walls. Put as many walls as possible
between you and the outside. Get under a sturdy table and use your arms
to protect your head and neck. Do not open windows.
A vehicle, trailer, or mobile home Get out immediately and go to the lowest floor of a sturdy, nearby building
or a storm shelter. Mobile homes, even if tied down, offer little protection
The outside with no shelter Lie flat in a nearby ditch or depression and cover your head with your
hands. Be aware of the potential for flooding.
Do not get under an overpass or bridge. You are safer in a low, flat location.
Never try to outrun a tornado in urban or congested areas in a car or truck.
Instead, leave the vehicle immediately for safe shelter.
Watch out for flying debris. Flying debris from tornadoes causes most fatali-
ties and injuries.

State of Vision—Gift Certificate
The State of Vision specialty license plate can now be purchased in the form of a gift certificate, just in time for the holi-
It's the perfect way to honor a fellow Lion, present a friend with a meaningful gift, or express appreciation to someone
we admire or appreciate.
Remember, proceeds from these gift certificates go directly to FAASB and are distributed to member agencies to fund
direct services to blind Floridians.
It's simple to do, and it feels good, too- just go to your local tag office and purchase a gift certificate in the name of the
recipient. You can then slip the certificate into a birthday, congratulation, Christmas or other card, or present it to a wor-
thy Lion at a club, zone, cabinet, or Council meeting!
Please circulate this information to everyone you know. And thanks to all of you who have already purchased one or
more plates. I now have them on all three of our family vehicles, and only wish they were available for motorcycles!
As Helen Keller's "Knights for the Blind" I hope all Florida Lions will proudly display this distinctive "Coat of Arms" on all
of their vehicles, and that you will encourage others to do the same!
