Creating an Action Plan to Prepare for Severe Weather

Severe weather conditions like thunderstorms and lightning can strike at any time. However, there are steps you can take to protect your home and property, and most importantly, ensure your family's safety. Don't let the unpredictability of nature catch you off guard. Be proactive and prepare ahead of time.

  1. Secure your outdoor belongings. Items like garden furniture, grills, or loose decorations can become hazardous projectiles during a thunderstorm. Secure them or bring them indoors to keep your property safe.

  2. Consider installing a surge protector for your home. Lightning strikes can cause power surges that damage electronics and appliances. A surge protector can help safeguard these valuable items. If a storm is imminent, unplug unnecessary devices to further protect them from potential power surges.

  3. Keep your gutters and drains clean and clear to prevent water buildup and potential flooding during heavy rains. Trim any tree limbs that hang over your home or near power lines to prevent them from causing damage during a storm.

  4. Invest in a good quality weather stripping for your doors and windows. This not only helps in maintaining a comfortable temperature inside the house but also protects against the entry of rainwater during storms.

  5. Always have an emergency kit ready. This kit should include a flashlight, batteries, first aid supplies, bottled water, and non-perishable food items. This will ensure you are prepared in case of power outages or if you have to stay inside for a prolonged period.

Remember, preparation is key when it comes to protecting your home and property from severe weather conditions. Regular maintenance, planning, and vigilance can go a long way to help you weather any storm that comes your way. So, don't wait for the thunder to roll or lightning to strike - start preparing today!
