A Guide to Proper Flood Safety

Bar none, the most challenging and common natural disaster that occurs in Canada is flooding. This is due to the propensity of snow melting and heavy rainfall, and the fact that the risk of flooding can happen any time of year, making your house constantly at risk. In order to help lighten the risk that homeowners have over flooding, I've prepared some quality advice. This advice covers a number of pieces of advice, which include

  • Protecting yourself and your loved ones by fortifying your home and prepping for a flood
  • Creating a smart plan between your friends and family to make sure that you know what to do when the flood does come
  • Make sure to avoid risking your life to protect your personal possessions during the flood
  • Taking pictures of all of the damage, as well as clean up and return to your old life

For extra information on what to do before, during, and after a bad flood situation, make sure to check out the articles inside.

Flood recovery

If worse comes to worse and the flood hits you hard, the next and (hopefully) final step is recovery. The first sub-step there is the insurance policies that you very well should have in the flood-prone Canada, and once everything has settled, it's important to return to what is hopefully a mostly salvageable home with the proper supplies - and check out this article to hear what to do once you go back.
