Flood Safety Best Practices

  • Stay Safe in a Flood: drinking water, returning home or back to business, and water testing kits.
  • Floodwater After a Disaster or Emergency | CDC: protect yourself and loved ones from disease/chemicals in the water
  • Never drive or walk through floodwaters. Strong currents or unseen washouts can sweep you and your car away.
  • Turn off the circuit breaker in your home before you evacuate – if you can do so safely.
  • If rising water is approaching, leave.
  • If you need to evacuate, do so over high ground. Plan that route as soon as possible.
  • If vacating and it is SAFE, flip the circuit breaker
  • Practice safe generator use (do not use in an enclosed space)
  • If your home floods, have a licensed electrician inspect your electrical system before you once again occupy your home.
  • If you are in a flood-prone area, or if you believe your home will be flooded, it is advisable to move valuables from your basement in case water enters your home.
  • Check your insurance coverage now, and then contact your insurance company if you have damage.
