Essential Storm Preparation Tips

  1. Create an Emergency Plan

    • Evacuation Routes: Know your evacuation routes and have a plan for where you will go if you need to leave your home.
    • Communication Plan: Establish a communication plan with family members to ensure everyone knows how to stay in touch during a storm.
  2. Prepare an Emergency Kit

    • Essentials: Include water, non-perishable food, medications, first aid supplies, flashlights, batteries, and a battery-powered radio.
    • Important Documents: Keep important documents like insurance policies, identification, and medical records in a waterproof container.
  3. Secure Your Property

    • Windows and Doors: Install storm shutters or board up windows and doors with plywood to protect against flying debris.
    • Outdoor Items: Bring in or secure outdoor furniture, decorations, and other items that could become projectiles in high winds.
  4. Inspect Your Roof and Gutters

    • Ensure your roof is in good condition and repair any loose or damaged shingles. Clean out gutters and downspouts to prevent water damage.
  5. Trim Trees and Shrubs

    • Trim trees and shrubs to reduce the risk of branches breaking and causing damage during high winds.
  6. Backup Power

    • Consider installing a generator to keep essential appliances running in the event of a power outage.
