Flood Preparedness Week October 23rd - 30th
Be Aware - Be Prepared - Take Action
Did you know that Water damage can happen every where.
Waterdamage from flooding: alluvial fan, debris flow, riverine, coastal, tsunami, flash, and localized floods.
Not every part of your neighborhood experiences every type of flooding, but the results of each is the same: without proper preparedness, lives, homes, infrastructure and agriculture are lost, and damage to the environment and economy is likely.
It is crucial for people to prepare for flooding by following three basic steps:
Be aware of your risk: Know whether your home is in a flood zone; pay attention to weather forecasts; and listen to local authorities.
Be prepared: Always have an emergency evacuation kit ready; be prepared to evacuate early; have a household inventory with copies of critical documents; and have a plan for where you will go in an emergency and what to do with your pets.
Take action: Evacuate immediately when advised to. Also, homeowners’ insurance does not cover damage due to flooding; consider purchasing flood insurance.
