Make A Severe Weather Plan

SevereStorm Make A Severe Weather Plan
You may have noticed that we’ve got a case of spring fever here at C&H. In much of the country, however, warmer temperatures also bring a higher threat of severe weather. Although tornadoes tend to peak during the spring months, the truth is that they can happen any time of year, especially in southeastern portions of the country.
Just as you create an evacuation plan in the event of a fire, you may also want to create a severe weather plan, especially if you live in an area prone to tornadoes. We’ve compiled some tips from the American Red Cross to help you create a plan.
Tornado Tips
*First and foremost? Pick a gathering spot. If you don’t have a basement, head to the center-most point in your home’s lowest level–a hallway, bathroom or closet. Make sure you’re away from windows.


*If you live in a high-rise building, you might not have time to get to the building’s lower level. Instead, crouch in a central hallway and keep your head covered.
*You may want to also assemble a disaster supplies kit that includes bottled water, battery-powered flashlights and radios (and extra batteries), canned food and a can opener, a First-Aid kit and any essential medications, protective clothing and bedding.
Do you have a severe weather plan for your home? If you have any additional tips, we’d love to hear them.

    I find using quick set pools is often a much cheaper and safer option especially when there is the risk of pets falling into the pool, which simply isn’t possible with a ring pool. Building a fence for a pool simply isn’t possible with the limited space in my backyard.

    Observing pool safety is really important, especially if you have kids. Make sure that everyone at home knows how to swim. Enroll them in swimming classes at your local pool, or at certified trainers. As for toddlers, never leave them alone in the pool. They should always be supervised by an adult. Also, always check the chemical levels and filtration system, to protect your child from possible water contamination.
