Safeguarding Your Home for Hurricane Season
It's officially hurricane season for those who live on the East Coast. If your house is in the line of fire, you'll want to start safeguarding your property before it's too late. You should:
  • Install a power surge protector in your electrical panel.
  • Stock up on plywood to block windows before a storm.
  • Invest in an air conditioning cover to protect it from flying debris.
  • Clear your yard of loose items and furniture that could become dangerous in high winds.
  • Inquire about hurricane or flood insurance.
  • Trim trees and low-hanging branches.
You'll also want to keep your gutters clean for the entire season. This will keep water from collecting around your home and flooding your property.
Creating an Emergency Plan
It's never too early to create your household's emergency plan. 

Here's how to do it:
  • Give each family member a responsibility.
  • Designate a safe spot or central meeting location in case you get separated.
  • Outline emergency contacts and phone numbers.
  • Create and practice an evacuation route.
  • Stock up on non-perishable food, water bottles, flashlights and batteries.
  • Pack a "go bag" for each member of the household.
  • Make a plan for your pets.
You may also want to invest in walkie talkies for each family member. During regional emergencies and disasters, cell phone and Wi-Fi service is often spotty or even non-existent.
