Hurricane season is officially from June 1st through the end of November, and believe it or not, we’ve already made it into July of this year. The question remains, are you prepared for these thrilling six months? Bradley Building Products has put together a few tips to help ensure you’re on your way to safety during this season.
Find out about shelter locations that are set up in your vicinity this year.
Make certain that you have sufficient basic supplies for a few days such as food, water, and all other necessities for your family. Don’t forget about medications, pet supplies, soap, and hand sanitizer.
Create Emergency Plan
Involve everyone in your home when formulating the plan in case of a hurricane. Remember to include evacuations from establishments outside of the home such as childcare facilities and offices in your plan.
Keep Disability in Mind When Planning
Having a support network and transportation method in place is very important in the event of a hurricane. Ready.Gov is an excellent website to utilize for additional information on how to plan if you or a member of your family has a disability.
Don’t Forget Pets
Pinpoint shelters that accept pets prior to an emergency situation and have a supply kit for your pet set to go. If you have a friend, relative, or neighbor willing to look after your pet in case you cannot, make the arrangements beforehand.
Smart Vent Flood Vents
Last, but definitely not least, have Smart Vent flood vents installed on your home before a hurricane or other natural disaster strikes. These efficient and effective flood vents protect the structure of your house from any damage due to flooding that could otherwise occur.
