Flood Safety Tips

With historic rainfall recently in parts of Florida, it is important to know what to do when flooding becomes a concern. Not only does protecting your home from water damage become important, but protecting your family and yourself becomes important as well.
A home can quickly be restored from the damages of water damage but the lives of loved ones cannot.


Here are some flood safety tips provided by emergency officials in Florida

  • Stay away from flood waters due to the possibility of currents being very strong
  • Stay away from electrical lines
  • Be alert for animals such as snakes, insects and loose dogs
  • Move valuable items upstairs or to an elevated area
  • Turn off household electricity
  • Check for gas leaks if possible
  • Never drive through flood waters — street flooding can conceal hidden dangers
  • Watch your step for trash and debris that may have been left behind from the flooding
