Storm preparedness list!
Are you prepared for an unexpected storm event? If not, this blog is for you! During the unpredictable weather in the month of June, we hear about rain storms but sometimes don’t imagine how intense they can truly be. It is always a good idea to plan ahead, just in case a true rainstorm unexpectedly strikes.
Firstly, make a plan. Create an evacuation plan for you, your family, and any pets. Choose a meeting place outside of your home, in case you are forced to evacuate.
Secondly, create an emergency kit to fill your household's needs. Make sure you add essentials like water, canned foods, a first aid kit, essential medication, etc. Remember to limit your emergency kit to items that are truly essential to you and your household.
Lastly, this will be crucial for preparedness, stay informed! Listen to the emergency weather alerts. Register to receive emergency alerts. Listen to your local officials when they urge you to take shelter in place or evacuate.
We hope these tips were helpful. We encourage you to research the resources that are made available to you in your community. As always, your local SERVPRO of Wheaton/Kensington franchise is here to help make it “Like it never even happened!”
