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

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

* OTHER PREPAREDNESS INFORMATION:
If your home or shelter was damaged, be alert to the smell of natural 
gas leaks and cautious around exposed electrical wiring, broken 
glass, jagged metal and wood, and protruding nails and screws.

Check to see if everyone in your group is OK. Administer first aid to 
those who are injured. Call 9 1 1 for any serious injuries. Remember, 
it may be more difficult for emergency responders to arrive quickly 
in the time period immediately following the storm.

Be a good neighbor and check on those living next to you. Be 
neighborly and lend a helping hand.

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.

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.

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.
