Title:

What to do when faced with a tornado

Text:

Hey everyone!! I was raised in the Pacific NW and spent a lot of my driving career in the mountain states and have never seen much less learned what to do when faced by a tornado situation while trucking down the open road.  As an Owner - Operator with a couple drivers now, I need to be responsible and provide them with some education on what to do when weather warnings/conditions may exist.

When I asked a Driver at a J who was talking about the recent events and how he just missed one by minutes.  His answer: "Hit your brakes, bend over and kiss you a** good-bye!" Not exactly the kind of advice I was hoping to get from a fellow Diver.

I know a lot of safety in any arena is mostly common sense but, any other advice that I can use to help educate my employees and other would be GREATLY appreciated!
