King How To Prepare And Respond To Hurricanes

The following saftey guidelines are for preparation before a hurricane. One thing to do during a hurricane is to plan out your evacuation. If you live near an area that gets hit by hurricanes, you need to decide weather to stay or go. If you choose to stay, you would have to do the best you can to make your home hurricane ready. You need to locate the building outside of range from the coast that is exposed to the storm surge. Have your home checked by a hurricane migration professional protection specialists offer free consultations (discussions with you about your home). It is a marketing strategy they use.

For hurricane evacuation plans, they will sometimes use sirens or phone calls. The amount of time you have to evacuate depends on the situation. If the hurricane can be monitored, you have at least 2 days to evacuate. It's a good idea to plan ahead in these type of situations. If you are worried about your house flooding, call the National Flood Insurance program at 1-888-RAIN924 (724-6924). For food safety, don't eat food that touched the flood water. Make sure all of your water is bottled as well.

If the power goes out, don't use a candle. It could burn out at anytime. Use a flashlight. Turn off all electrical devices that you were previously using (other than the flashlight of course). It can waste energy. Don't open your refridgerator or freezer either. It can waste energy as well.

Pet Safety
If you have pets, make sure they have their vaccinations. You should also have a current picture of your pets. Have a collar with the identification of your pets and carry a leash to control your pets. Have a properly-sized pet carrier for the size of your pets. When you plan your evacuation, DONT FORGET YOUR PETS!! If you are really concerned about the saftey of your pets, you might want to put them in an animal refuge clinic. If you abide by all of these rules, you can save the lives of all of your family members and your pets too.
