It’s Not Over

It’s Not Over

            After a disaster has occurred the
danger is not necessarily over. Rebuilding and fixing power lines and other
dangers will take time. There are certain precautions and steps to fallow to
make sure you not only survive the disaster but have your peace of mind after
the event.

Here’s a word from travelers:

Here is what
you need to do:

sure everyone is safe.
Stay tuned to the radio or television until an official “all clear”
is given. If you were evacuated, return home only after authorities advise it
is safe to do so.

for broken glass and sharp objects and avoid downed power lines.
Never touch anything in contact with power lines, including water or puddles
that may be near the downed lines.

a qualified individual check for gas leaks or electrical system damage.
Report those problems to the utility companies right away.

your property from further damage.
Arrange for reasonable temporary repairs. Board up broken windows to protect
against vandalism or additional weather damage. Take photos of the damage and
save all bills and materials receipts. (Do not make permanent repairs until the
insurance adjuster has reviewed the damage.)

out questionable food.
Discard any food that has come in contact with contaminants, such as flood
water or smoke. If the power is out, make sure to leave the freezer and
refrigerator closed to keep food cold for as long as possible.

your claim immediately.
The sooner you call your insurance carrier, the sooner they can help. Be sure
to speak to a claim professional before hiring a contractor to make permanent
repairs. When choosing a contractor,
select one who is licensed.

portable generators with caution.
Turn off the generator and let it cool down before refueling. Fuel spilled on
hot engine parts could ignite.
