Be Prepared: Spring Property Prep.

Flooding, wildfires, and extreme wind are common during the spring hazard season. #BePrepared by safeguarding your property now to minimize the risk when the threat is real. Start with simple actions:

💦 Flooding 

  • Check the weather sealant around windows and doors and seal any cracks or gaps.
  • Ensure downspout drainage moves water away from the property.
  • Install a sump pump and zero reverse flow valves in basement floor drains if possible.  

🔥 Wildfires

  • Incorporate FireSmart methods into your regular yard maintenance.  
  • Prune all tree branches to create a two-meter clearance from the ground.
  • Ensure sheds and other structures follow the same FireSmart guidelines.

💨Extreme wind

  • Consult a roof assessment professional to ensure shingles are intact.
  • Secure loose objects such as canopies, gutters and downspouts that may be picked up by the wind.
