a tornado warning has been issued, a JCHD employee will
take you to a designated "tornado shelter" within the
building. Once you are situated in the shelter
if possible, assume a kneeling position, head
down, with hands covering your head. Wait until
the ALL CLEAR signal is announced and you will then be
taken back to your previous location.
If you are at the Jackson County Health Department
after there has been an actual tornado strike of our
facility, JCHD staff will
