The first and most crucial step in preparing for severe weather is knowing where your safe place is.

Find your safe place and post a selfie all over social media on Wednesday, April 4 with the hashtag #SafePlaceSelfie to join in on the fun before the storm.

Think about the safe place at home, at work, or even at church. Do you know where you would go if a Tornado Struck your office?

Meteorologists suggest you get creative with your photos and think about all hazardous not just Tornadoes.

Is your safe place always the same? Another tip for a good selfie, show off what you have in your safe room.

Share a selfie with the First Alert 6 Weather App on your phone, your emergency kit or a NOAA Weather Radio.
