HOW TO BE SAFE DURING A FLOOD


Are you prepared?

Floods are one of the most common hazards in the United States. Some develop slowly, while others can occur within just a few minutes. Floods can happen on both a small scale and a large scale. Here are the top three safety tips to help you prepare for a flood:

 

1) Turn Around, Don't Drown! ®

 

2) Avoid walking or driving through flood waters 

 

3) Just 6 inches of moving water can knock you down, and 2 feet of water can sweep your vehicle away

Flooding often impacts single communities or neighborhoods, but it can also stretch across multiple counties and even states. Anywhere it rains it can flood, so it’s important to be prepared. Have you made a family emergency plan? Don't wait. Communicate. Call a family meeting and create your emergency plan now!
