As big storms start showing up in the news again, it’s important that you are prepared for any issue that you may have to face. Here are some tips for you to prepare for a hurricane in the Jacksonville area:
- Invest in a Generator – Losing your electricity is always frustrating. Whether you live on a grid that is known for shutting down or need power for your work from home job, having a generator installed ahead of the storm is a wise investment. With a generator, you won’t have to worry about losing any power as the storm shuts down the power in surrounding homes.
- Prepare for an Evacuation – Do you have an evacuation plan? Whether you are dealing with an extended power outage in your area or potential floodwaters, it’s vital that you have a plan, and a backup plan or two, in place.
- Unplug Valuable Electrical Items – Your TV, sound system, computers, and any other electrical items should be unplugged when a storm hits. When these items are plugged in, there is a possibility that harmful power fluctuations could damage them.
