WHEN INSPECTING DAMAGE, USE FLASHLIGHTS RATHER THAN CANDLES OR
FLAMED LIGHTING. BE AWARE OF SPARKS THAT CAN IGNITE LEAKING GAS OR
OTHER FLAMMABLES.

DO NOT GO UP ON YOUR ROOF UNTIL THE RAIN AND STRONG WINDS HAVE 
SUBSIDED. LADDERS CAN BE SLIPPERY IN THE RAIN AND UNEXPECTED WIND 
GUSTS CAN BLOW YOU OFF OF THE ROOF. DO NOT RISK BODILY HARM IN AN 
ATTEMPT TO REDUCE PROPERTY DAMAGE.

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.

PROBLEMS WITH SEWER BACKUPS CAN FURTHER CONTAMINATE STANDING FLOOD 
WATERS. KEEP CHILDREN AWAY. ALSO, LISTEN FOR BOIL WATER ALERTS 
RELATIVE TO COMMUNITIES WHOSE TAP WATER MAY HAVE BECOME NON-POTABLE.
