Preparedness Email - Week 11


Getting Accurate Information

  • The City of Minneapolis has a useful webpage listing a variety of places where you can get emergency information. You can also sign up for emergency email and phone updates from the City.

  • Invest in a NOAA weather radio, which will turn on automatically when severe weather approaches your area. This will be particularly important when severe storms or tornadoes occur at night.

  • Call ECHO Phone 1-888-883-8831 (toll free within Minnesota) for background information (in multiple languages) on emergency situations, as well as instructions on how to stay safe and where to go for more information.

  • If you have become separated from family, Red Cross Get Help can help you find loved ones or a local shelter.

  • There are also a variety of phone apps that may be useful for contacting people and receiving or sending emergency information.

This email series -- brought to you by neighborhood volunteers at Transition Longfellow -- is designed to help you become more prepared for extreme weather emergencies.
