Spring Storm Tips for Foxborough, MA
Spring is here in Norwood West Roxbury. It is a fun time of year from the cook out’s, to sports, and gatherings. However, spring can also mean strong severe storms. There are some simple things you can do to prepare for storms before they happen.
Here are a few tips to consider:
Trim trees: You will want to get rid of dead branches. They could end up being dangerous in a severe storm.
Ensure sump pumps are working: Rainstorms can result in flooded basements. You will want to make sure they are working properly now, not when the storm comes.
Secure backyard items: Move any large items that can be blown away with high winds such as patio furniture, lawn chairs, propane tanks, grills, flags, and poles, to your shed, or garage.
Be ready for power outages:
Think ahead: Plan to have ice in your freezer before the storm arrives.
Use a cooler: Add any food that you want to access easily to in the cooler. This will keep
other items in the fridge without constantly opening the fridge.
Extras: Check to make sure you have extra batteries, drinking water, and a good first-aid kit
