Lancaster Storm Damage - Anticipating the Worst
Although we don’t want to admit it, no one wants to prepare for the possibility of a storm. However, with Hurricane Harvey, we have seen what happens when families aren’t prepared. Animals are left behind, important documents are lost, and people don’t know where to go to get help or seek shelter. Having a plan in place and not having to use it is much better than not planning one and losing everything.
What does SERVPRO of Lancaster recommend?
Packing emergency bags full of food, water, medication, items for your pets, and making a list of important documents to grab (social security information, blood types, birth certificates, bills, deeds, license, registration, insurance, etc.) should be first on your list. Then, you should have an escape route. Where are you going to go once you flee your home? Do you have reliable vehicles, phones, etc.? Lastly, teach your children to seek help if for some reason you become separated during a natural disaster. There are many ways to do this, including making necklaces or bracelets for your children with emergency contact information, blood type and any allergies they have.
