Preparing for Storms We realize that storms might hit out of the blue. One minute, the sky is crystal clear, with a calm breeze. The next minute, a storm is brewing over the area. We advise our customers to start preparing for storms and storm damage long before they occur. We've all heard stories about people that are preparing for the Zombie Apocalypse or the great disaster that ends the world. However, it is more practical to prepare for a real life situation that could occur at any time. For example, thunderstorms, tornadoes, lightning strikes, hurricanes, and floods are more apt to strike a community than the disasters mentioned above. It is important to have a plan in place for any storm. For example, plan a safe location for the family in the home or a nearby evacuation center. Put together a storm disaster kit and store it away for use during the event. It is also a good idea to have a battery-operated radio that is tuned to the local weather station for updates on the storm. Make sure that the entire family is well aware of the emergency plan to keep everyone safe. Practice the plan a few times per season to stay on the safe side. More Storm Safety Tips Believe it or not, the safest place to be during a storm is inside your own home. Don't rush outside, in the middle of a storm looking for safer ground. Instead, we suggest that you stay inside, listen to the weather forecast, stay away from corded telephones, avoid interacting with any type of electrical equipment in the home.
