Get there safely

Denver International Airport Sign, Terminal C, 2011
This sign surprised me and got me thinking about planning for the unexpected.

Along with Baggage Claim and Gate listings, I would expect to see Ground Transportation, Taxi/Shuttles/Transit. I would expect to get directions to the Restrooms, First Aid/Medic, even Police or Emergency stations. But I would not expect Tornado Shelter as a 1-line option on these signs. 

Since tornadoes aren't part of my basic weather consciousness, seeing a "tornado shelter" called-out next to the usual suspects teased my anxiety, rather than prompt my sense of preparedness.

It left me wanting a follow-up on the topic so that I could learn about incidences and specifics of tornadoes in Denver, and parse the level of risk associated with a trip through Denver International.
