Spring Clean Your Way to Preparedness
As temperatures warm up, many Georgians will be preparing to spring clean their homes. As you scrub, dust and de-clutter your home in time for the busy summer months, think about adding a few simple preparedness tasks to your list to keep your home and family prepared for emergencies:
- Replace the batteries in your smoke alarm and NOAA weather radio.
- Keep important documents safe by storing them in waterproof containers.
- Remove dead or rotting trees and branches that could fall and cause injury during a storm.
- Check your family’s Ready Kit to ensure all necessary supplies are included.
