Flood Preparedness Information

  • Fill bathtubs, sinks and plastic soda bottles with clean water. Sanitize the sinks and tubs first by using bleach. Rinse and fill with clean water.
  • Gather the emergency supplies you previously stocked in your home and stay tuned to local radio or television station for updates.
  • Have your immunization records handy or be aware of your last tetanus shot, in case you should receive a puncture wound or a wound becomes contaminated during or after the flood.
  • Turn off all utilities at the main power switch and close the main gas valve if evacuation appears necessary.
