Be Prepared: Flood Season

While the Peace Region may be experiencing a dry spell in comparison to other areas of the province, it is never a bad time to prepare for an unexpected emergency. 

Springtime is the start of flood season in Alberta. Education around flood preparedness and a little home maintenance can go a long way. Here are a few preventative action items to #BePrepared and ensure your property stays dry: 
•    Use weather protection sealant around basement windows and the bases of ground-level doors. 
•    Ensure downspout drainage moves water away from the property. 
•    Install a sump pump and zero reverse flow valves in basement floor drains. Make sure your sump pump is replaced regularly according to the manufacturer’s guidelines. 
Are you in a high-risk flood zone? Take action now and prepare an emergency kit stocked with essential supplies, as well as a pet plan to keep your furry friends safe.
