Hurricane Preparedness for Property



Hurricane Preparedness for Property

  • Hurricane winds can cause trees and branches to fall, so before hurricane season trim or remove damaged trees and limbs to keep you and your property safe.
  • Secure loose rain gutters and downspouts and clear any clogged areas or debris to prevent water damage to your property.
  • All major vegetation cutting and/or tree removal should be done between December 1 and April 30.
  • No vegetation trimming or bulk items should be placed at the roadside after a named storm.  We cannot guarantee pick-up of vegetation or bulk items before landfall.
  • Reduce property damage by retrofitting to secure and reinforce the roof, windows and doors, including the garage doors.
  • Purchase a portable generator or install a generator for use during power outages.
  • Remember to keep generators and other alternate power/heat sources outside, at least 20 feet away from windows and doors and protected from moisture; and NEVER try to power the house wiring by plugging a generator into a wall outlet.
  • Typically, there's a 30-day waiting period from date of purchase for a flood insurance policy to go into effect.
