Summer Storm Preparation

6/5/2021 (Permalink)

Summer storms may not be as prominent as winter storms, but they can be just as deadly if you’re not prepared. It’s important to know all the dangers that could come up during the storm so you can properly protect your home and your family. The American Red Cross has a helpful list of things you can do to prepare for the summer storms and keep everything you care about safe this summer;

  • Know your local community’s emergency warning system for severe thunderstorms
  • Pick a safe place in your home for your family to gather during a storm
  • Store or build your storm survival kit in your shelter location
  • Keeping trees and other plants trimmed
  • If you have outside pets, make sure their shelter is secured
  • Consider installing a lightning rod
  • Consider going through first aid training

Taking a few preventive steps ahead of a summer storm can prevent major damage to your home and family. It’s important to think ahead, especially when a storm can be on its way at any time. So enjoy your summer and stay safe when you see those storm clouds rolling in.
