Helpful Tips For Hurricane Season

For six months of every year, Floridians need to be on high alert because it is hurricane season. The Law Offices of Michael B. Brehne, P.A. have some reminders to help Florida residents prepare their homes and businesses for a storm.

Gather Information

Develop a list of shelters and evacuation areas in your community that you may need to use. Pick a room in your home that is the most secure if shelters are not an option. Develop a plan of action for your family taking into account that you may become separated and need alternative methods to locate one another and communicate.

Prepare An Emergency Kit

The kit should include supplies, food and water. Non-perishable foods should last you and your family a few weeks in the worst-case scenarios. Batteries, rope, flashlights, first aid kits, clothes and a radio will be extremely useful. Plan ahead for what you may need. It is better to be safe than sorry.

Protect Your Home

The biggest concern this season will be the well-being of your home and property. Account for using your hurricane shutters . If you do not own any, consider getting them or using pre-cut plywood that would adequately cover your windows. Store any loose items in your yard to ensure it is not a dangerous item when a storm hits.

Check Insurance Coverage

Is your homeowner’s insurance adequate? How about flood insurance? Hurricanes are major natural disasters that result in massive financial consequences for insurance companies. There are also technicalities that come into play concerning flood claims.
