Hi Y'all! Welcome to my Home Page. I'm Wally. I spend my time teaching people what to do when they hear an emergency siren.
Shelter in Place
You may wonder what a turtle knows about chemical safety, but, I say who is BETTER than a turtle. When a siren sounds you need to go inside to shelter in place and, as a turtle, I always carry my shelter with me on my back.
To shelter in place you only need to remember three simple rules. Here, let me point them out to you....
Now that will be easy...won't it. First go inside, close all doors and windows, and turn off the air conditioning (or central heat). Next, turn your radio on to KTRH 740 AM to get updates on what is happening. Finally, stay off the phone. Too many calls make it tough for emergency workers to talk with each other.
I work for the Southeast Regional LEPC (Texas). I really enjoy my work. If you have a group of people you would like for me to talk to, just call the LEPC office at 713-475-7088 or email me
. I'm kinda busy...but, I'd love to come see you and talk about chemical safety.
Thanks for visiting my Home Page. I hope you come back real soon!
