Be Prepared for Spring/Summer Weather!


May 1st, 2017

Prepare Your Home & Property

  1. Remove damaged trees and trim tree limbs.
  2. Check all rain gutters and downspouts and secure them if needed. Unclog areas to prevent water damage to your property.
  3. If you own a boat, remove it from waters and secure it in a safe place.
  4. Consider purchasing a generator but remember to keep all generators at least 20 feet away from windows and doors.

 

Plan

  1. Gather a basic disaster supply kit, which should contain the following:
    • One gallon of water per person per day for at least 3 days
    • A 3 day supply of non-perishable food
    • Flashlight and extra batteries
    • First aid kit
    • Whistle to signal for help
    • Blankets, towels, garbage bags
    • Wrench or pliers
    • Manual can opener
    • Maps
    • Chargers for cell phones
  2. Put together a list of emergency contacts
  3. Move vehicles to higher ground

 

Recover

  1. Wait until the area is safe and inspect your home carefully before entering.
  2. Do not enter your home if you smell gas, flooding remains around the property, or if your home was damaged by a fire.
  3. Call your insurance agent if you have any damage and need to report a claim.
