It is OFFICIALLY hurricane season! Hurricane season runs from June 1 to November 30. During this time, it is crucial for home and business owners to know how to prepare their property to prevent disaster. Luckily, SERVPRO of Annapolis/Severna Park has tips from the Federal Emergency Management Agency to help keep your property safe from hurricane damage. 

Tips for Preparing Your Home for a Hurricane  

  • Cover all your home’s windows with precut plywood or hurricane shutters to protect them from high winds 
  • Plan to bring in ALL outdoor furniture, decorations, garbage cans and anything else not tied down 
  • Keep all trees and shrubs well-trimmed  
  • Turn off utilities and turn the refrigerator thermostat to its coldest setting 
  • Turn off any propane tanks 
  • Ensure a supply of water for sanitation purposes, such as cleaning and flushing toilets 

Tips for Preparing Your Business for a Hurricane 

  • Carefully assess how your company functions, both internally and externally, to determine which materials and procedures are necessary to keep the business operating 
  • Identify operations critical to recovery 
  • Plan what you will do if your business is not accessible  
  • Consider if you can run your business from a different location or at home 
  • Develop relationships with other companies to use their facilities in case a disaster makes your location inaccessible
