As a National Weather Service Storm Ready Site LLCC is committed to safety and storm readiness and offers the following tips:

  • Monitor the weather and be aware of watches and warnings
  • Have a plan and a survival kit should severe weather strike while you are at home
  • Take a minute to familiarize yourself with emergency evacuation routes and safe areas while away from home
