It’s hard to believe, but according to weather.com, we have already had 5 named tropical storms in the Atlantic this year. That leaves 10 more to go, according to their predictions which makes hurricane preparation especially important. If these tropical storms turn into hurricanes, having a hurricane home preparation kit for your Brooklyn home can help keep your family prepared in the event of devastating hurricanes or tropical storms.
We all remember Hurricane Sandy, which hit the east coast in 2012, and the swath of devastation left in its aftermath. The New York area may or may not be in for another major hurricane this year but it makes sense to be prepared.
The experts at Petri Plumbing in Brooklyn offer 24-hour emergency service, and we want to make sure you and your family are as prepared as possible in the event of a tropical storm or hurricane hitting the area this fall. Here is a list of things to have in your Hurricane Home Preparation Emergency Kit:
Also consider packing an emergency bag with last minute items like clothing, toiletries, basic essentials, a few snacks and cash for an emergency evacuation. Have a plan for what to do with your pets in an emergency, so you are prepared ahead of time. Make sure all their tags and identification are up to date and consider implanting a chip so you can be reunited if separated during the storm.
Aside from your family and pets, your home will need to be prepared as well. The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) website also offers a great list of things every homeowner should check before a storm hits. Petri Plumbing is at the ready in case of any emergency situation, but being prepared always helps. Call the experts at (718) 748-1254 to schedule an appointment.
