TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTHI) - Tornado Drill Day.

This test happens annually, and Tuesday was the day for it in Indiana.

"We had a tornado drill, and they are done periodically throughout the year just so that in case of a real emergency, or weather condition, such as a tornado drill, the students in our school know what to do and where to go."

Bri Dillahunt is a kindergarten teacher at Saint Patrick school in Terre Haute.

She says teaching these kids at an early age makes her feel good because it prepares them for any kind of event.

"It is important so that everyone in the building can have, or know where to go so that they are safe so that no one gets hurt."

And even at an early age, kids like Gabriella Cwerner know how important the drills are.

"Something like this can really happen, and can hurt people, and we want everyone to be safe."

And by having a plan in place, both the teachers and the students feel a little safer.

"It makes me feel really good."

"Oh, a lot more."

So take this week as an example.

Make a plan, and make sure everyone in your family, school, or business knows what to do.

It very well could save your life.
