PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS
----------------------------------


* EVACUATIONS:

RECOVERY PHASE - Do not return to evacuated areas until it is safe. Listen for the all-clear signal from local authorities.

* OTHER PREPAREDNESS INFORMATION: Be a good neighbor and check on those living next to you. Be neighborly and lend a helping hand.

Those who rode out the storm away from their home or business are likely anxious to return. However, allow some time for work crews to make a clear path for emergency vehicles. Downed power lines and trees may be blocking roads and flood waters may have washed out or overspread sections of key travel routes. Traffic lights may also be out of service.

Do not attempt to return to evacuated areas until local authorities give the All-Clear signal.

Do not go sightseeing within impacted communities simply to observe storm damage. Sightseers can interfere with the timeliness of rescuers and first responders to needlessly jeopardize lives.

When inspecting damage, use flashlights rather than candles or flamed lighting. Be aware of sparks that can ignite leaking gas or other flammables.

When clearing out fallen trees, be careful with chain saws and axes. Always wear protective gear and keep others at a safe distance. Use these tools according to operating manuals and safety instruction. Leaning trees and those which have fallen on roof tops can be especially challenging. If you are not in good health or unsure about what you are doing, have someone else with tree cutting experience do the job. Never cut trees without a partner.

If using a generator, avoid carbon monoxide poisoning by following instructions by the manufacturer. Make sure that the generator is run in a well ventilated space.
