Hurricane Preparation

Hurricane season is still upon us. Are you prepared? Here are some helpful tips to enforce safety and preparation for future storms:

Let’s start with the most important thing on the list, food! You will want to get a water supply for about 3-7 days, canned food, a manual can-opener, non-perishables for 3-7 days, paper plates, cups and plasticware in case you lose electricity. 

Another thing on your list should be supplies. This would include the following items:

  • Flashlights
  • Batteries
  • Candles and matches
  • Cooler
  • First Aid Kit
  • Hand Sanitizer
  • Insect Repellant
  • Pocket Knife
  • Generator
  • Grill and Charcoal
  • Solar Powered Walkway Lights

Last but certainly not least, you should make sure you do the following for your safety:

  • Put up storm shutters
  • Fill gas tanks
  • Fill propane tanks
  • Have cash on hand
  • Fill bathtub with water
  • Charge all electronics
  • Remove patio furniture
  • Bring trash into the garage
  • Turn A/C and fridge temp down
  • Freeze water in gallon jugs and leave in the freezer
  • Trim branches close to your house
  • Make sure your flood insurance in up-to-date

All of these things are important to ensure your safety and to help you if there is any damage to your home. Don’t forget to take pictures of your home before the storm to show proof of any damage to your insurance company.
