Paul Davis offers safety tips to property owners to prepare for hurricane season


JACKSONVILLE, FL — The 2013 hurricane season began on June 1 and it is predicted that this will be a very active season, with the major weather services are predicting 16 to 20 named storms with seven to nine becoming hurricanes, according to a press release.

After Hurricane Sandy losses topping $50 billion last year, the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) launched its hurricane safety theme for 2013 as a "Pledge to Prepare," the release stated.

According to the release, Paul Davis Restoration Inc. offers the following tips for safety during hurricane season:

Pre-hurricane season preparation:

  • Build an “Emergency Ready Kit” and prepare a family communications plan.
  • Know your evacuation routes and shelters.
  • Have extra batteries and flashlights and at least a three-day supply of fuel, water and non-perishable foods.

When a hurricane watch or warning is issued:

  • Protect windows with plywood boards or storm shutters.
  • Secure outside objects.
  • Pay attention to local weather reports on radio, TV or the Internet.
  • Make arrangements for loved ones that are elderly or have special needs to be evacuated. (Don’t forget pets, too.)
  • Leave low lying areas.
  • Evacuate if instructed to leave.
