Quick Storm Preparedness Tips

  1. Check roof drains and down spouts to make sure they are clear of debris.
  2. Keep children away from creeks and large drains which can be deadly during storms.
  3. Keep leaves and yard trimmings out of storm drains and gutters.
  4. Don't forget your pets, and don’t forget to pick up pet waste to prevent water pollution.
  5. Turn off automatic sprinklers.
  6. Don't store hazardous materials in areas that may be subject to flooding.
  7. Store emergency supplies (first aid kit, essential medicines, cash, food, non-electric can opener, portable battery-operated radio, flashlights and spare batteries) in air-tight bags and in handy locations.
  8. Keep your car fueled. If electric power is cut off, filling stations may not be able to operate.
