Tornado Helmets!

Safety Research Strategies (Sean Kane's outfit), the one that has been pushing the claim that unintended acceleration on the part of Toyota was not caused by pedal misapplication, but rather by un-identified electronic gremlins, now brings us this sage advice: if you are in a tornado prone area, you should keep some helmets around to avoid head injuries should the tornado actually hit your house.

I'm not kidding.  They are serious.

Really!  A whistling monster of a twister is bearing down on your house, and you are expected to remember to don your headgear?

I think a much more sensible (though expensive) approach would be to keep a safe room in the house, a hardened room in the interior of the house which is by design isolated from the rest of the house structurally.  FEMA has a page on tornado safe rooms.

LOL! Great post - sounds about right for Toyota.

For those of us who can't afford a safe room in a house I don't know how much effect a helmet is really going to have on a Twister!

Yes! It is a proven fact done by research at medical school and university that wearing a helmet during a tornado event may save your life. During the outbreak of tornadoes 4/27/12, there were many head injuries, and some were fatal injuries. A helmet offers much protection. In a Tornado prone area, there are many things we rely on for protection because everybody cannot have a safe room/storm shelter. A helmet is one of them. So, please spread the word! thanks! :)
