#BePrepared - Week 9

As warm weather approaches, now is a good time to prepare your home or property from potential flooding. A little upkeep on your property can go a long way.

  • Check your eavestroughs and downspouts and clear out any leaves or clogs, so snowmelt and rainwater does not pool on your roof.
  • Help prevent pooling water on the ground by clearing debris and breaking up jams so water can flow freely towards drainage.
  • Make sure your downspouts drain away from your property.
