Continued on page 11 HFPD Gives Guidelines For Residents When Civil Defense Siren Sounds ^— By Tracey Schwartz Last Tuesday evening approximatley 8pm you may have heard the Civil Defense siren sounding in Huntley. If you're like me, you may have wondered just exactly what to do. Huntley Fire Chief Dave Veath wants Huntley residents to know exactly why the siren was activated, when it will be sounded in the future and what to do when this happens. Tuesday evening Huntley Fire Protection District activated the siren because McHenry County Emergency Services issued a tornado warning for McHenry County. The warning came after a tornado was sighted touching down in Garden Prairie, about 15 miles west of Huntley. According to Veath, when the National Weather Bureau or the McHenry County Emergency Services issues a tornado warning, HFPD will sound the Civil Defense siren. It will blow continuously for 3 minutes. The siren will sound only for tornado warnings, not for tornado watches or thunderstorm watches or thunderstorm warnings. A tornado warning is when an actual tornado has been sighted in the area and conditions are favorable for a tornado touchdown. A tornado watch, however, is when conditions are favorable for the possibility of tornado only. In a watch, no tornado has been sighted. So... you hear the Civil Defense siren. You know there is a tornado warning for the area. What do you do? Veath recommends you follow these guidelines. If you are outside, seek shelter immediately. The Legion Auxiliary Sponsors Poppy Day By Dorothy Schaller, Poppy Day Chairman The Huntley American Legion Auxiliary will be having Poppy Day in Huntley, Friday, May 24, 1991. The 1991 Poppy Slogan is "Lead With Your Heart - Help An Ace, One Who Served Their Country." Let's show our appreciation to our Veterans for their services given, by proudly contributing and wearing the Poppy, May 24th and again on Memorial Day. The proceeds donated through the Poppy Day programs are used to provide for the disabled veterans, widows and children of the veterans through the Veterans Affairs and Rehabilitations and Children and Youth Programs. We kindly ask our Huntley area citizens, young and old both, to show honor and respect by contributing Poppy Day, May 24, 1991. The Poppy as the Memorial Flower for American war dead is a tradition which began in the years following the First World War. Veterans returning to their homes in this country remembered the wild poppies which lined the devastated battlefields of France and Flanders, and the soldiers of all nations came to look upon this flower as a living symbol of their dead comrades' sacrifice. "In Flanders' fields the poppies blow - Between the crosses, row on row—" Thus, the flower soon took on a sacred significance in remembrance for the men whose lives had been lost in defense of freedom and also for the plight of those men who did not die but returned permanently disabled. On September, 1920 at the National Convention in safest place outside is to lay in a ditch. If you are in your vehicle, get out and seek shelter, perferrably the roadside ditch. If you are at home, go to the basement. The southwest corner is best. If you don't have a basement, the bathroom is usually the safest room in the house according to Veath. Veath says you should remain taking cover until the All Clear signal sounds. The All Clear signal will be 5 short up & down blasts of the Civil Defense siren. Tuesday night HFPD signaled the All Clear siren about 9:30pm indicating the warning was over. Above all, Veath says if you hear the Civil Defense siren, do not call the Fire Emergency telephone number inquiring what to do. This line must be kept open for emergency calls to come in. Cleveland, Ohio The American Legion was the first national organization to adopt the Poppy as the Memorial Flower to the war dead and on October, 1921 in Kansas City, Mo. the American Legion Auxiliary adopted the Poppy as the Memorial Flower. The American Legion Auxiliary then adopted a National Poppy Program in 1924 to protect the Memorial Poppy from commercialism. The program is now being conducted to honor the Americans wounded and who died during World War I and 11, Korean War, Vietnam War, Grenada-Lebanon Crisis, Panama Crisis and, at hand, Middle East War. The Poppy is made only by veterans in hospitals and all proceeds from this program each year are directed back to aid the veterans or members of their families through their programs.
