Make a plan – Know where you will put your yard items that will be at risk during high winds such as plants, furniture, decorations, umbrellas, & other items. Will you secure them or bring them inside? Do you have sufficient room to store the items?
Pick Up Debris – If you have trees in your yard you know they often drop branches. We have all been guilty of looking the other way when our yard needs picked up. During storm season it is very important to stay on top of this chore so it doesn’t build up and steal the valuable time you need to prepare other items.
Maintenance – Do a maintenance check on fencing, decks, tree, vegetation overgrowth, and other items which may need repairs on your property. Taking care of these items before a storm is predicted is an important part of hurricane preparedness.
