WICHITA FALLS, Tx (RNN Texoma) - 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.

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