Our planet has seen some catastrophic storms over the last few decades. There’s a sense that the next big natural disaster is just around the corner. The climate in Australia is no different. Storms have ravaged the country in recent years and preparedness is a larger concern than ever.
First and foremost, people need to have the proper plan in place to protect their families. Evacuation is always the best bet during the threat of a large storm bringing copious amounts of rain and strong wind gusts, but evacuation isn’t always possible. Make sure you have a first aid kit well stocked and easily accessible. Also, look to have a flash light with plenty of batteries. Preach to any children the importance of having a game plan in place and how that can keep the whole family calm and safe when disaster strikes.
Look to have a plan for your family to reach lower ground in the event of a storm. If you have a basement, make sure you have plenty of non-perishable food and water available. If you don’t have a basement, make note of the nearest shelter to your home. Note the different routes that are available when driving to the shelter. Traffic will be an issue, so knowing different routes could be a life saver. Keep lines of communication open and bags packed. The better your family is prepared; the better off you’ll be in the event of a storm.
Beyond the risk a major storm brings to personal health, the protection of your belongings is critical. In recent storms, most people who kept their belongings in sheds were devastated by the destruction – that is unless they had Shed Safe technology. Shed Safe technology is an Australian steel initiative. It ensures they every shed is strong and durable enough to deal with the strongest storm winds. If you have personal belongings that you want to ensure are safe, don’t roll the dice by keeping them in your home. Look to Shed Safe technology to keep your belongings in perfect condition.
After the storm occurs, be sure to stay cognizant of loose debris. While your shed may remain in perfect condition, the elements around the shed could be loose. Stay alert while driving and note that the roads may not be as clear as you had hoped. Get a plan in place today for preparedness and feel safe tomorrow.
