TIPS FOR THE HURRICANE SEASON


Protect your windows from the threat of flying debris, by installing shutters.

Ensure that your roof and foundation are secure.

Check for termite damage.

Trim tree branches.

Have an up-to-date insurance policy.

Secure emergency supplies and important documents in water tight containers.

Have a portable first-aid kit and know the location of the nearest emergency shelter.

The District Emergency Organisations (DEO's)

Joining a District Emergency Organisation in your community is another step towards getting ready for the season.

If you are a carpenter or artisan be sure you get involved!

In case of a storm or hurricane members can assist with makeshift housing after the system has passed.

Training is available in chainsaw operation and first-aid.


Before the Storm

Keep on hand lumber, a hammer, torchlight, masking tape, medicine, boots, rubber gloves, raincoat, nails, rope, wires, plastic sheeting, and sandbags.

Have enough water stored in sealed plastic containers to allow for cooking, bathing, washing and other domestic chores for two weeks.

Have canned foods and dried goods and a portable transistor radio.

Keep listening to your local radio station for updates and advisories.

In the event of a flood, don't try to drive or walk through high waters, you may be swept away!
