Are You Prepared for a Flood

2/21/2022 (Permalink)

Flooding is one of the most common widespread weather-related disasters in the United States. Whether your home or business is near a coastline, along city streets, in the mountains, near a river, or even in the desert, there is always the potential for flood damage. With this being such a prevalent occurrence across the country, it is good to know the following safety tips provided by the ARC:

Stay Away from floodwaters

If you approach a flowing stream where water is above your ankles, stop, turn around, and go another way.  Six inches of swiftly moving water can sweep you off of your feet.

Driving on a Flooded Road

Turn around and go another way.  If you are caught on a flooded road and water is rising rapidly around you, get out of the car quickly and move to higher ground.  Most cars can be swept away by less than two feet of moving water.

Keep Children Out of the Water

They are curious and often lack judgment about running water or contaminated water.

Always be prepared and ready. Even minor floods have the potential to cause major damage to a structure when not treated quickly and properly, and the cleanup is often an overwhelming task. SERVPRO of Jonesboro is prepared to handle any size disaster. The sooner work begins; the sooner your home or business can return “Like it never even happened.” Call us at (870)934-0501.
