Protecting People

Your most valuable asset is yourself, your family and your friends.  Although, the majority of this website deals with the protection of your home and belongings, protecting yourself, your family and your friends is most important.  Preparing in advance for a flood event is most of the battle.  Never place yourself in harms way to protect property.

  • Prepare your family  “Know Your Risks” 
  • Do not walk through flood waters.
  • Do not drive through a flooded area.
  • Stay away from power lines and electrical wires.

Turn around, don’t drown!

Most flood fatalities happen because people try to drive through deadly waters rather than avoid them. (Source: Federal Emergency Management Agency, 2005)

 

  • Pay attention to barricades. Don’t ignore them by driving past them.
  • Do not drive through standing water on roads or in parking lots.
  • The average automobile can be swept off the road in 12 inches of moving water, and roads covered by water are prone to collapse.
  • Attempting to drive through water also may stall your engine, with the potential to cause irreparable damage if you try to restart the engine.
  • If you come upon a flooded street, take an alternate route.
