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


* OTHER PREPAREDNESS INFORMATION:

When clearing out fallen trees, be careful with chainsaws and axes. 
Always wear protective gear and keep others at a safe distance. Leaning
trees and those which have fallen on roofs or power lines can be 
especially dangerous. If you are not in good health or unsure about 
what you are doing, have someone with tree cutting experience do the 
job. Never cut trees without a partner.

If using a generator, avoid carbon monoxide poisoning by following 
instructions provided by the manufacturer. Operate your generator in 
a well-ventilated space outside of your living area and away from 
open doors and windows.

Be alert for flooded roads which could be compromised or littered 
with debris. Avoid travel until water levels subside and roads have 
been cleared. Do not drive through places where flood waters cover 
the road. Turn around, don't drown!
