Tips for when Stormy Weather Hits

For many people, when a storm hits the aftermath may include debris, flood waters, power outages, shattered glass and damages to your home. Here are a few tips to help save your home and keep your family safe.
- Avoid an Electrical Disaster - With heavy rain, flooding in inevitable. If water makes it way into your home, make sure the power is turned off even if there is a widespread power outage. Locate your fuse box and turn your main breakers off.
- Be Prepared with Protective Gear - Be sure to wear protective clothing like rubber boots and gloves. You will be wading through water that has met many foreign objects and substances including chemicals, sewage and garbage.
