Hurricane Preparedness Week - Help Your Neighbor
May 1st - 7th, 2022 is Hurricane Preparedness Week
Being a good neighbor and helping others prepare for and during hazardous weather incidents is important. Helping neighbors prepare means everyone is ready for whatever may occur. Some neighbors may need help evacuating if necessary. Check on your neighbors after the storm passes. Together we can all weather the storm.
You Are the Help Until Help Arrives
Did you know that forty-six percent of individuals expect to rely a great deal on people in their neighborhood for assistance within the first 72 hours after a disaster? You can make a difference by getting involved in your community and acting today to prepare for the upcoming hurricane season!
The basic steps for helping your neighbor are easy. This week, be sure to help your neighbors collect the supplies they’ll need before the storm. Then as storms approach, assist them with evacuation orders if ordered to do so. Then after the storm is over, be sure to check on your neighbors after its safe for you to head outside.
Stay safe and be prepared. Should water damage occur after a storm, contact SERVPRO of Benton, Jasper, Newton & Southern Lake Counties at 219.779.7577
