Flood Safety is something that we must consider more and more in the Northeast. Flash flooding is a term we are getting all to used to hearing.

September brings with it National Preparedness Month. We're used to preparing for the Winter months up here, not so much floods. I think it's time we start thinking about floods, Don't you? Let's DIVE in shall we!

Below is a list of things to consider ahead of the next rainy season.

  1. Make a family emergency communication plan and include pets.

  2. Have emergency supplies in place at home, at work, and in the car.

  3. Check on your neighbors to make sure they’re okay. Especially your elderly neighbors who may not be able to gather the supplies needed to ride out a storm.
  4. Know what to do before, during, and after a flood. To learn more about the three stages of flood preparation, follow this informative link: Floods
  5. Flood insurance takes 30 days to take effect, so purchase now to protect your family!
  6. Homes are not the only thing at risk! If you are a business owner, you have many other things that need to be considered about how you can prepare for a disaster at your business. For a comprehensive list of needs and considerations for your business, follow this informative link: Business
  7. Listen to local officials by radio, TV or social media. In case of power outages, have a battery powered radio on hand so that you won't miss important information.
  8. Evacuate when advised by authorities or if you are in a flood or flash flood prone area. Know your evacuation route!
  9. If you are on high ground above flooded areas, being prepared to stay where you are may be the best protection.
  10. Never drive or walk through flooded streets; Turn Around, Don’t Drown! Do not go through flood waters.
