Don’t get washed away… prepare NOW!

Your weekly dose of tips, tricks & tidbits from The Security Zone



  • Purchase or renew a flood insurance policy
  • Keep important documents in a waterproof container. Create password-protected digital copies
  • Move valuables to higher levels
  • De-clutter drains and gutters


  • Do not walk or drive through moving water. As little as six inches of water can cause you to fall or lose control of your vehicle
  • If walking through water, use a stick to check the firmness of the ground in front of you
  • Do not touch electrical equipment if you are wet or standing in water


  • Avoid floodwaters as they may be contaminated by oil, gasoline, raw sewage or electrically charged from underground power lines.
  • Clean and disinfect everything that got wet. Mud left from floodwater can contain sewage and chemicals
  • Take pictures of the damage, both of the building and its contents, for the purpose of insurance claims.
