5 Essential Steps to Prepare for Potential Flooding

Research local flood maps or consult authorities to understand the likelihood of flooding in your area.

Know your flood risk

Establish evacuation routes, a meeting point outside the flood zone, and a communication plan for your family. Practice the plan regularly.

Create an emergency plan

Elevate utilities, install backflow valves, seal basement walls, and elevate belongings or install shelving.

Safeguard your home

Gather non-perishable food, water, medications, first aid supplies, flashlights, batteries, a portable radio, clothing, hygiene items, and waterproof bags for important documents.

Prepare an emergency kit

Standard homeowners' insurance usually doesn't cover flood damage. Contact your insurance provider to explore flood insurance options in your area.
