Though we recently had a false alarm here in Central Florida, it’s better to be prepared when hurricane season rolls around, especially since these storms can be highly unpredictable. This includes your home as well as your business. Here are our top tips to prepare for tropical storms and hurricane weather:
Stock up on essentials: water, non-perishable foods, candles, flashlights, batteries, games for the kids, back-up chargers, medications, etc.
Make sure you keep important papers in a safe and secure place
Skip the window tape -> board up your windows instead
Trim the trees and shrubs around your home
Don’t touch metal fences following a storm, as downed power lines could cause the metal to conduct electricity
Don’t use charcoal or gas grills inside
Don’t drive through moving water, even if it’s low
Stay away from windows during the storm
Follow evacuation orders
Be a good neighbor!
Remember, it’s better to be prepared for a storm that doesn’t come than not be ready if it does.
From everyone at Sunline, stay safe this hurricane season!
