Unlike hurricanes, which oftentimes form in the Atlantic between June 1st and November 30th, tornadoes can spin up (or touch down) at any time, and at any place. In fact, and according to the National Safety Council, no one state in the continental U.S. has escaped the wrath of tornadoes. Even Canada averages around 100 twisters each year.

So, whether your organization or jurisdiction is in Wichita, Kansas, Washington, DC, or Winnipeg, Manitoba, you need to be fully prepared for the threat of potentially deadly twisters. This means taking every measure possible to ensure personal safety and organizational continuity before disaster strikes. And that requires planning; hopefully, BOLDplanning.

For years, BOLDplanning has helped public and private sector organizations across the country to develop, implement, exercise and improve their emergency operations and continuity plans
