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

* EVACUATIONS:

NONE.

* OTHER PREPAREDNESS INFORMATION:

BE A GOOD NEIGHBOR AND CHECK ON THOSE LIVING NEXT TO YOU. BE 
NEIGHBORLY AND LEND A HELPING HAND.

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.

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.
