We expect our sets to be safe. But often times people’s focus on safety can get lost in the collective rush to “get the shot” or “make the day". No one plans this. It just happens. When safety by the nature of moving fast and keeping up becomes secondary, it is left to all of us to look out not only for ourselves but for each other as well.
Communications  In any weather or other emergency situation communication becomes vitally important. Production should purchase and keep on location and at the production office a National Weather Service weather radio. These are inexpensive (usually less than $20) and readily available at area retailers.
