According to SERVPRO, these are recommendations on what to do before a storm approaches
The experts at SERVPRO have issued the following guidelines on what homeowners and property managers can do to protect themselves BEFORE Kissimmee Storm Damage occurs:
- Use wooden beams to reinforce garage doors.
- In a clean bathtub, open the cold water spigot and fill until the maximum possible level. This can provide you vital drinking water for days in an emergency.
- Take the car to the nearest station and fill up the tank with fuel.
- Rehearse your storm evacuation plan with your family, and make sure that every family member knows multiple alternate routes to safety in case you get split up.
- Head towards the nearest shelter in case you need to leave your home quickly.
- Board up your windows and doors with 5/8-inch plywood or use tailored hurricane shutters.
- Scour the outside of your property and pick up any items that could be lifted by the wind and hurled through windows or cause other Kissimmee storm damage.
- Get your axe and take it to the attic. In case of severe flooding, you may need to break your way out through the roof.
- Locate important personal documents such as wills, passports, birth certificates and Social Security cards, and store all of them in a secure, sealed, watertight container.
- Obtain your pre-written inventory of all valuable household appliances, electronics, items, jewelry and property.
- Evacuate your home immediately, if ordered to do so, and follow all commands.
- If you are forced to flee your home, be sure to leave a note that says where you are planning to go.
