Here are a few hurricane preparation tips:

The more you prepare in advance, the easier time you will have recovering from a hurricane that causes damage to your home. Make sure to be proactive and act now so you can better protect your property and your loved ones!

  • If a storm should strike your area, many friends will be looking for a status on you and your home. Designate one person to email (or call) your friends with your status.
  • Get a list of all contractors (roofers, general contractors, yard clean up, etc.). If you have a maintenance contract with them, ask to be contacted so you can be first on the list.
  • Be sure to have a cell phone and purchase an extra battery just in case. If a hurricane should strike your area, your phone service may be out for weeks, or longer. Cell phone service will probably be affected, but it may be your only source of communication.
  • Purchase a generator, as you’ll probably need temporary electricity. Be sure to get several gas cans to fill the generator often. You may want to test the generator beforehand and make sure you have to proper extension cords to run your refrigerator, etc.
  • Take photos of you home, business, and personal property. A video may be best. You may want to mail these photos (or email them) to a relative, in case your home is flooded. Or, keep important documents in a watertight safe, or put them in Ziploc bags in a safe place (not in the attic or near windows). These documents should include insurance papers, photos of your property before the storm, licenses, credit cards, etc.
  • Make a copy of your insurance policy and email it to yourself.  This should include the number to call if you have to place a claim. Unfortunately, if your home is destroyed, your documents will be destroyed as well.

Keep listening to NOAA Weather Radio or local radio or TV stations for instructions. If you’ve evacuated, only return once officials tell you to do so. Inspect you home, not just for obvious damage, but also for hidden damage (such as an unsafe structure). Use flashlights in the dark; do not use candles.

It is important to remain prepared and informed as the season begins.
