Lightning in clouds. Planning for thunderstorms, lightning, tornadoes, and floods requires specific safety precautions.

Thunderstorms cause most of the severe spring weather. They can bring lightning, tornadoes, and flooding. Whenever warm, moist air collides with cool, dry air, thunderstorms can occur. SERVPRO is always here to help in case a disaster was to occur. During weather like this, floods are very likely, and we are always here to assist.

Get Your Home Ready for a Flood 

Planning for thunderstorms, lightning, tornadoes, and floods requires specific safety precautions (CDC).

  • Have a licensed electrician raise electric components (switches, sockets, circuit breakers and wiring) at least 12″ above your home’s projected flood elevation.
  • For drains, toilets, and other sewer connections, install backflow valves or plugs to prevent floodwaters from entering.
  • Anchor fuel tanks which can contaminate your basement if torn free. An unanchored tank outside can be swept downstream and damage other houses.

Thunderstorm season is right around the corner, and you know what that means. More floods. It is almost inevitable, when heavy rains come, it must go somewhere.

How to Reduce Housefires in Cranberry, PA

1/29/2022 (Permalink)

Firefighter putting out housefire. Home is the place people feel safest from fire, but it’s actually the place they’re at greatest risk.

“Home is the place people feel safest from fire, but it’s actually the place they’re at greatest risk. Approximately 80% of all U.S. fire deaths occur in the home; an average of seven people die in home fires every day” (NFPA.org)

According to NFPA’s latest reports, home fires and home fire deaths declined by about 50% since 1980. These numbers show that while we’ve made strong progress in preventing fires, mitigating their effects when they do happen remains a challenge. Today’s homes burn faster than ever; You may have as little as two minutes (or even less) to safely escape a typical home fire from the time the smoke alarm sounds. Modern home furnishings, along with the fact that newer homes tend to be built with more open spaces and unprotected lightweight wood construction, all contribute to the increased rate at which home fires burn.

The death toll of home fires can be reduced through:

  • Educating the public on how to prevent fires and how to avoid serious injury or death if fire occurs
  • Properly installing, testing, and maintaining smoke alarms
  • Developing and practicing escape plans
  • Wider use of residential sprinkler systems
  • Regulations to make home products more fire-safe
  • Addressing the needs of groups at high risk of fire injury and death, particularly the aged, the disabled and the poor
