Are You Prepared for This Hurricane Season??
With Hurricane season upon us, SERVPRO of Tallahassee wants to make sure our neighbors and our community is prepared for this Hurricane season. Hurricanes can cause lots of issues for our community as we have seen these past two seasons. We want to make sure we are ready to help, and our community members are readily prepared if disaster strikes.
In 2016 Hurricane Hermine left our residents without power, for some, up to seven days, and other extreme cases, even longer. We witnessed lots of branches and even whole trees fall on to roof tops. One member of our community suffered severe damage to their home when a huge tree fell on their roof. It caused severe structural damage to the trusses and tore through the electrical wiring of the house. The storm rain flooded into the home. Unfortunately, the rain didn’t do the most damage to the home. Shortly after Hurricane Hermine dissipated, tragically the home caught on fire. Hurricane Irma brought similar situations to some of our residents in 2017. So please be careful and call in experts to help.
Although we can’t prevent hurricanes from coming we do want to provide to you the information you will need to help stay safe this season. When it comes to safety we look to The U.S. Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) for guidance. FEMA agrees that being prepared makes sense in any emergency situation stating “Preparing Makes Sense. The likelihood that you and your family will survive a house fire depends as much on having a working smoke detector and an exit strategy, as on a well - trained fire department. The same is true for surviving a terrorist attack or other emergency. We must have the tools and plans in place to make it on our own, at least for a period of time, no matter where we are when disaster strikes. Just like having a working smoke detector, preparing for the unexpected makes sense.” So please, SERVPRO of Tallahassee urges everyone to please plan for this hurricane season and make sure you are ready!!
