SERVPRO of Galveston and Lake Jackson: Hurricane Preparations
Hurricane season officially started on June 1st and will end on November 30th, 2017. SERVPRO of Galveston Island and Lake Jackson wants to makes sure you are prepared this hurricane season. Follow the tips below this hurricane season:
1. Stock-up on Necessities
Water, canned food, charcoal, necessary medications, toiletries and anything else you may need if you can not get to the store for several days.
2. Make a Disaster Kit
Many stores run out of necessities like water, batteries, and other supplies when a storm is going to make landfall. Buy supplies before a storm is on the way, so you have everything you need. Make a disaster readiness kit and include the items below:
- Copies of important documents
- Fully charged backup cell batteries or a portable charger
- Battery operated radio
- First aid kit
- Water (several cases)
- Canned food
- Pet food
3. Make a Plan
Create a disaster readiness plan with your family. Figure out where you will go if you need to evacuate. Create a list of important phone numbers. Make sure each member of the family is accounted for in the plan and knows what to do. Plan for pets too, as pets are often forgotten in storm preparations and many pets are lost each hurricane season.
