With hurricane season here your safety is essential, here are some tips from FEMA (Federal Emergency Management Agency) on preparing for this hurricane season. 

Before the flood

  • Install "check valves" in sewer traps to prevent flood water from backing up into the drains of your home or business.

During the flood

  • Turn off utilities at the main switches or valves if instructed to do so.
  • Disconnect electrical appliances.
  • Do not touch electrical equipment if you are wet or standing on water.

  • Avoid flood waters as it may contain harmful chemicals.
