Percy Swanson, Huntle^f'g civil defense director, announced today that there are certain things which people must leam ahd do that will help them get ready for and cope witfa ^most any type of natural disaster. Mr. Swanson went on to say that perhaps the naost basic thing to remmnber is to keep oatoi. This may metm the differ- ;ence between life and death. In many disasters people have been killed or injiu-ed needlessly because they took tlwughtless acUon when they should have done soaieduag else or done nothioe Just dien. In time .qf.^eamsmss,. Mm» proper actkra may save your Se. Take time to think and then take the conskiered actkm whidi the sit- uiation calls for. Usually this will be aa action you have planned in advaiKe or the action you are in¬ struded to take by responsible au¬ thorities, he continued. In Huntley we ai^ using an "at¬ tention" or "alert" signal, usually a diree to five minute steady blast to get the attention of the people in time of a threatening or. im¬ pending peace time emergency. When diis aignal sounds people ^ould tum on their radkie or tele¬ vision sets to hear innibrtan't emergency informatkm being broad¬ cast. On Tuesday, April 9. a test of emergency warning siren will be conducted at 1^:30 a.m. This test is • being ddtie to HetpoM peeple WiUi the sound of the emergency siren.
