South Florida based Rapid-Rooter Plumbing & Drain Services recently issued a public advisory reminding the residents of the greater Florida area to prepare for the upcoming hurricane season. Learn more here: https://www.rapidrooter.com.
Nishan Hussain, a company spokesperson, observes that, “Hurricanes can cause serious destruction to our homes and livelihood. Unfortunately, they are out of our control, and we can’t really do anything to avoid the devastating effects caused by hurricanes. However, the best we can do for now is carefully plan ahead before they even hit us.”
Hussain states that one of the most important things to do as the hurricane season approaches is to create a detailed emergency and escape plan. “All members of your family should know what to do or where to go when a hurricane strikes. Some important things to discuss with your family include how to communicate with each other during the storm, where to go in case communication lines are lost, and what to do in case flooding occurs,” he says.
Another smart thing to do before the hurricane season is to stock up on essentials. Hussain emphasizes that, when a hurricane strikes, people are bound to stay at home since it is unsafe to go out. As such, it is important to make sure to have enough supplies of food, medicine, and other necessities that will last for the entire duration of the hurricane. Similarly, having a checklist of things that need to be stocked-up can be helpful and can make keeping track of emergency stocks easier. Since strong hurricanes can cause power outages, homeowners are advised to stock up ready-to-eat meals, such as canned goods and snacks, so that their family can still eat even if there is no electricity or gas in the household. At this stage, it is also important to take note of any dietary restrictions that a family member may have when buying food to stock.
In addition to stocking up on food and medicine, Hussain recommends preparing other important items, such as a flashlight or an alternate light source, a power bank, some clothes, money, and significant documents such as passports and identification cards. Local homeowners should take the additional measure of obtaining a battery-operated radio and extra batteries so that they can stay up to date with the news and official announcements even if their electricity goes out.
Rapid Rooter strongly suggests that all commercial facilities have their storm systems and drains properly cleaned in preparation for heavy rains which will impact the property during a hurricane. It is vitally important to clean storm draining systems of any debris that could prevent the drain system from operating which will cause flooding during such heavy rain.
