Being prepared for a hurricane is your best bet

Here we are more than a week into the official start of hurricane season.  Are you prepared? It’s a good idea to start getting prepared before the season starts..but what should you do? (besides making sure your garage door is hurricane rated)

Experts agree that one of the best things to do is prepare a family hurricane plan – an outline that specifies what every member of the family will do before, during and after a hurricane.

Some general guidelines for preparing your family hurricane plan are:         hurricane prepardness

  • Find out if you live in an evacuation zone.
  • Call your local emergency information center.
  • Decide in advance where your family will stay during a hurricane – at home, a friend’s home, a shelter or a hotel. Pick a back-up location in case there is a problem with your first choice. Make sure everyone knows the location, address and phone number.
  • Ask an out-of-town relative or friend to be your emergency contact, and make sure everyone knows that person’s phone number. Tell your contact person where you will be during the hurricane.
  • Make arrangements for those with special needs.
  • Talk to your employer about whether you will have to work in the event of a hurricane. If so, decide who will pick up the children from school.
  • Practice and review your plan.

A hurricane supply kit should be put together long before a hurricane threatens your area. Your hurricane supply kit should include:

A TWO WEEK supply of each item for each person in your home.
WATER

  • Seven gallons of water per person (1/2 gallon for drinking and 2 gallon for bathing, tooth brushing, etc.).
  • Store water in clean, plastic containers.

FOOD

  • Purchase foods that require no refrigeration and little preparation such as:
  • Ready-to-eat canned food
  • Canned juices, milk, soup (if powdered, store extra water)
  • Soft drinks, instant coffee and tea.
  • Lots of ice (You can freeze your water supply.)

BABY

  • Formula, bottles, powdered milk, jarred baby foods
  • Diapers, moist towelettes and special medications

PETS

  • Newspapers or cat litter for your pet’s sanitary needs
  • Moist canned foods in order to preserve water
  • Plastic sheets to cover the floor of pet’s room

MEDICINE

  • First aid kit, rubbing alcohol
  • Aspirin, non-aspirin pain reliever and antacid
  • Extra prescription medication (especially for those with heart problems and diabetics)
  • Ask your physician or pharmacist how to store prescription medication.

PERSONAL ITEMS

  • Toilet paper, towels, soap, shampoo
  • Personal and feminine hygiene products
  • Denture needs, contact lenses and an extra pair of eye glasses
  • Sun protection, insect repellent

OTHER SUPPLIES

  • Battery-operated radio, flashlights, non-electric can opener, extra batteries
  • Charcoal, waterproof matches, extra propane for gas grills (Use grills outside only.)**
  • ABC-rated fire extinguisher in a small canister
  • Portable cooler
  • Plenty of absorbent towels, plastic trash bags
  • Wind-up or battery-operated clock
  • Tarp or sheet plastic, duct tape, hammer and nails (for temporary roof repairs)
  • Cleaning supplies such as chlorine bleach
  • Aluminum foil, paper napkins and plates, plastic cups.
  • Can of spray paint (can be used to identify your home for insurance adjusters in case it’s damaged)
  • These items can cause fires and shouldn’t be stored inside the house.

CLOTHING/BEDDING

  • At least one change of clothing per person, sturdy shoes, hat and work gloves
  • Blankets and pillows or sleeping bags

June is National Garage Door Safety Month

Where safety is concerned, better safe than sorry. During the month of June we hope you’ll take a few minutes and make sure your garage door is working properly, in hopes of preventing a needless accident or injury. Your garage door is the largest moving object in your home, and during Garage Door Safety Month there is no better time to check the operation of it and perform any necessary repairs or maintenance.  images

Garage Door manufacturer Clopay Garage Doors offers great ideas and ways to make sure your garage door is operating correctly.

• Check that the door opens and closes smoothly. If not, the springing system may need to be adjusted or replaced.
• Look for loose brackets on the garage door. Because they are under tension, they can cause serious injury if loosened or removed.
• Gauge the age of your garage door springs. They, too, are tightly wound and can cause damage or injury if they wear out and break.
• Check for any frayed or worn cables.
• Make sure the opener’s automatic reversal is working. To test a garage door opener, place a roll of paper towels under the door, and lower it. When the door hits the towels, it should reverse. If it doesn’t, have it checked.
• Teach children about garage door safety. Place the control switch for the garage door opener at least 5′ above the floor so that small children can’t reach it; remind them that the garage door opener is not a toy.

Have your garage door inspected by a trained garage door technician from Broten Garage Door Sales. Call us to schedule an appointment!
