Hurricane season is not over yet. The worst hurricanes happen in August, September and October. Are you prepared and ready? We at ServiceMaster Restore by the Griffin Company want to offer some tips to insure you are prepared.
There are many things you can do to prepare for hurricane season. Let’s review the below items.
Step 1: Have a Plan for Hurricanes
Start by having a plan in place for you and your family. If you are evacuated, you should already have a plan regarding where to go. Also, get together a disaster supply kit that contains critical information and supplies if you do need to evacuate. Another great part of the planning process is to make a communication plan with your family.
Step 2: Review your Insurance Policy
You should also take time each year to examine your insurance policy. This can help you determine if there are areas that require adjustment or if you need additional coverage. You may even want to talk with your insurance company to help you determine whether you have the right amount of insurance.
Step 3: Take Care of your Health
When a hurricane is looming, make sure you take the time to ensure you have enough of any prescriptions you normally take. Remember, when a hurricane hits, it could be weeks before you can refill your prescriptions, so having several weeks-worth in advance of a hurricane is important.
Step 4: Check on Your Neighbors for Hurricanes Plans
Check in with your neighbors to see how you can help each other before and after the storm. If you are running to the store to grab a couple of last-minute items check to see if your neighbors need anything.
