Home Flood Repairs
As part of getting ready for America's PrepareAthon, we've talked about what to do to prepare for and survive a Flood... what about after? Repairing your home after a flood can be a stressful endeavor. That’s why FEMA and the American Red Cross developed a comprehensive book to help get you started on the road to recovery. “Repairing Your Flooded Home” gives step-by-step advice to make the process less overwhelming. Your home and its contents may look beyond repair, but many of your belongings can be restored. If you do things correctly, your flooded home can be cleaned up, dried out, rebuilt and reoccupied sooner than you think. Copies of this book are also available at your local Red Cross or by sending a written request to FEMA at: PO Box 2012 Jessup, MD 20794-2012 America’s PrepareAthon! will also put the focus on floods with the first national day of action on April 30. You can learn various ways to take action before a flood impacts you. Plus, you can take advantage of free resources available on the America’s PrepareAthon! website including How to Prepare for a Flood. Be sure to keep your eye out for more information regarding the website early next week! This document explains how to protect yourself and your property, and details the steps to take now so that you can act quickly when you, your home, or your business is in danger.
