  • Keep trees trimmed to prevent limbs from falling onto buildings, cars or people.
  • Make sure preparedness kits are portable for easy transport if evacuation is necessary. Preparedness kits should be tailored to household needs.
  • If hail or strong winds are expected, park vehicles under a shelter to avoid damage.

  • To make sure that your home is prepared for a house fire, check that your smoke detectors are functioning and always have fresh batteries, and make sure that your windows can be easily opened and that their screens can be quickly removed. Everyone in your family should know how to open and close these windows.
