Preparing for Hurricane Harvey
August 25th, 2017
As Hurricane Harvey approaches, I trust that you are taking every precaution to ensure you, your families and friends will suffer no injury or damage to self or property. Her are some basic steps you can take to ensure your safety should the storm hit:
- Emergency Supplies You Will Need: Stock your home and your car with supplies.
- Make a Plan: Create a family disaster plan.
- Avoid Flooded Areas : Take precautions before, during, and after a flood.
- Prepare to Evacuate: Never ignore an evacuation order.
- Protecting Older Adults: Understand older adult health and medical concerns.
- Protecting Pets: Ensure your pet’s safety before, during, and after an emergency.
- Prevent carbon monoxide (CO) poisoning after the storm: Place generators outside at least 20 feet from any door, window, or vent.
I hope everyone is able to endure the hurricane without incident. Please be safe.
