PRE-HURRICANE PREPAREDNESS TIPS


As a hurricanes approaches, personal safety comes first. (See Ready.gov)

But if you have time, protect your family treasures by following NEDCC's advice:


*   Move your collections of personal photos and family heirlooms away from windows and doors. Placing them in boxes, even temporarily during the storm, will add a layer of protection and will make them easier to handle.

*  Raise collections of photos and documents off of the floor to protect them from flood damage. Drape plastic sheeting or tarps over collections to protect from ceiling leaks.

*  Plan ahead for easy access to your collections so that immediately following a storm--after people and property are secured--you can inspect your family treasures for damage. Be sure to look inside fire safes; although these are fireproof, they are usually not waterproof. See NEDCC's Preservation Leaflets on Emergency Management for what to do if items are wet.

*  Plan for easy access to fans. Using fans to circulate the air inside your home will help control the heat and humidity that can cause mold to grow.

*  Save digital files in Cloud storage. Make sure you have a recent backup of important files like family photos.

*  Running out of time? Snap cell phone photos of precious items and email the photos to yourself so that you can retrieve them later.
