Tips to Stay Safe Before, During and After a Storm
Storms can take you and your family by storm. And the extent of storm damage can leave you feeling overwhelmed, lost and wondering what your next step should be. The best thing to combat this is preparation. The heroes at SERVPRO® of Cape Girardeau & Scott Counties are all about you and your family’s safety. Here are some tips to stay safe before, during and after a storm:
Before the Storm
- Build an emergency supply kit, and develop a communication plan.
- Secure outdoor objects that could blow away or cause damage.
During the Storm
- Avoid contact with plumbing. Plumbing and bathroom fixtures can conduct electricity.
- Unplug appliances and other electrical items, such as computers. Power surges from lightning can cause serious damage.
After the Storm
- Stay away from storm-damaged areas to keep from putting yourself at risk.
- Stay away from downed power lines, and report them immediately.
