Storm Prep Tips

Trim Your Trees: If you live in an area that is commonly affected by storms, you will want to consider the area your home is built. If there are large shrubs, trees, etc. in close proximity to your home, you may want to spend the time and money to remove them. This can prevent severe damage from the trees falling on your home. It also can be a great precautionary measure to prevent you or your family getting harmed by falling trees or flying branches.

Stock Up On Non-perishable Foods: Food and water are perhaps the most important things to make sure you have during a storm. The best kinds are the ones that do not need refrigeration, in case the power goes out. Usually canned goods, freeze dried fruits, and ramen noodles are great choices.

Maintain a Safe Room or Safe Area Zone: If you are in a storm prevalent area, you most likely set up a safe room or safe area for when storms hit. If you have not, it is a good idea to consider creating one that is durable enough to withstand the weather. If you do have one, it is important to keep it maintained. Be sure to keep it stocked with food, water, flashlights, batteries, blankets, and first aid kits. Refer to our next blog post for the best First Aid/ Emergency kit items!
