Prepare and Be Aware
If it’s safe to do so, here are a few quick and simple tips for homeowners as the storm approaches:
- Conduct a home inventory of your property. It’s helpful to keep track of model numbers and stores where items were purchased. Store your inventory, including photos and videos, in a safe place away from your home.
- Develop an evacuation plan that includes identification of safe areas, escape routes, meeting locations and plans for pets.
- Bring patio and other outdoor furniture indoors to reduce the possibility of blowing debris.
- Prepare an Emergency Supply Kit including a three-day supply of water, non-perishable food, radio and batteries, flashlight and first-aid kit.
- Remove any damaged limbs from trees to keep them from blowing around during a storm and causing property or automobile damage.
- Secure your yard to ensure that loose objects do not become projectiles.
