Now is the Time to Talk Severe Weather Preparedness with your Kids

When a tornado touches down or a severe weather alert sends out, the first thing you may think of is if your family is safe.

April 21-25 is Wisconsin's Tornado and Severe Weather Awareness Week, and Tony Omernick from United Way stopped by Sunrise 7 to let us know why it's important to talk with your kids about severe weather preparedness.

Disaster Volunteer Reception Center training will take place from 5:30-8:30 p.m. on April 22, 24, and at 10:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. on May 8.

Disaster Emergency Preparedness event will take place from 10-11 a.m. on April 21.

For more information on any of the events United Way offers, call 2-1-1.
