Preparedness Resolution #4: How prepared is your home for different disasters? Preparing your property is the first step to protecting your property.
-Create a barrier between your home and vegetation to decrease fire risk. Clear any dead leaves next to your house and trim bushes and vegetation to create a clear space between the house and vegetation. The larger the space, the better for fire spread prevention.
-Clean out your gutters. Gutters help protect your roof and home from flooding and damage. Clogged gutters can lead to a leaky roof or water damage to the interior or exterior of your home.
