HURRICANE PREPAREDNESS CHECKLIST

Be prepared this hurricane season by following our simple hurricane checklist.
Disaster Restoration Services
  • Research and vet restoration companies, and get prices, in advance of or early into storm season. This will help to expedite the repair process and reduce price gouging after the storm. Plus, you can be confident that you will be working with a reputable company.
  • Have vegetation trimmed well in advance so no loose branches or plants will be damaged, or cause damage, during the storm.
    Inspect your window protection for rust, damage, missing bolts, etc. (make sure hurricane bolts are easily accessible and not rusted or painted over) and repair immediately.
  • Inspect your walls, windows, garage door and roof for conditions that may allow wind damage. Make sure there are no cracks in the stucco and have your roof inspected.
  • Call and have someone come out for a home building inspection.
  • Find out if you are in an evacuation zone. If so, have your exit plan ready in the event of an evacuation. Learn more here.
  • Learn the elevation level of your property and whether the land is flood-prone. This will help you know how your property will be affected when storm surge or tidal flooding are forecasted.
  • Compile a list of numbers for your local emergency public safety and law enforcement officials.
  • If you reside in a high-rise building, be prepared to take shelter on or below the 10th floor.
  • Gather insurance and all property information to have on hand for claims. FaciliSmart is a great system that helps with this.
  • Notify residents of the basic supply kit they should have on hand. See complete supply list below.
  • Know where you are going and your exit route should an evacuation notice be issued.
