Below you’ll find a few points to take note of.
Learn how to turn off your electricity, gas, water, etc. If there’s a hurricane approaching, shutting off your utilities will ensure that there are no gas leaks or water gushing out of burst water pipes should there be impact.
Prepare a list of actions to follow. Write down exactly what tools you’ll need and how long it will take. During a crisis, you just need to refer to the list and quickly take action.
Clean all gutters and drains yourself or hire someone to do it for you. You want a house and its surroundings to be clean and clear. The roof gutters should be cleared for proper drainage when it rains.
If any parts of your house are damaged, fix them. A house with weak spots will be exploited and compromised by unrelenting winds and rains.
You may wish to have a safe to store all your valuables, important documents and emergency cash. Make sure the safe is large, waterproof and anchored to the ground.
Minimize hazards and reduce risks in your house.
Have a couple of fire extinguishers around the house. Check your smoke alarms and carbon monoxide detector.
Make sure your family and you practice evacuation drills so that everyone is on the same page and doesn’t panic and run about aimlessly in a crisis.
