Storm Preparedness

TAKE PRECAUTIONS IN THE EVENT OF A STORM

*All residents should have a family disaster plan. Know where you will be evacuating to and plan ahead to stay with family and friends or lodging outside the area. Be sure to provide shelter for your pets and notify friends and family of your plans.
*Bring all outdoor items such as garbage cans, lawn furniture and other items inside prior to the storm.
*Remove debris and keep trees trimmed.
*Inspect outside drains to make sure they are free of clogging.
*Secure and board up windows in your home.
*Cars and boats should be moved to high ground before exiting your home.
*Store valuables and important documents in a waterproof safety deposit box in the highest level of your home.
*Make sure generators are in working condition.
*Before evacuating, check with your utility company in advance to find out what should be turned off.
*Make sure your car has a full tank of gas, cell phones are fully charged, prescription medications are filled and have enough money, clothes, blankets, diapers, baby formula and personal items to get you through several days.
*Prior to leaving, unplug appliances, lock your home and do not return until the area is deemed safe.
