Flood Evacuation

12/10/2020 (Permalink)

As the seasons change, storm season is always an unknown. With storm season there comes a risk of flash floods and landslides. No matter where you are, SERVPRO of Anchorage wants you to be prepared.

If you hear about a flood in your area, please remember these tips:

  • If water enters the building you are in and evacuation becomes impossible, move to an upper floor and wait for rescuers.
  • While evacuating, avoid attempting to drive through floods or rising water, nearly half of all flash flood fatalities are auto-related.
  • Do not touch electrical equipment if you are wet or standing in water.
  • Do not walk through moving water. Even six inches of moving water can make you fall.
  • Avoid floodwaters. They may be contaminated by oil, gasoline or raw sewage.
  • Stay out of any building if it is surrounded by floodwaters.
  • Listen for news reports to learn if the community’s water supply is safe to drink.
  • Return only when authorities indicate it is safe.

If you experience storm or flood damage to your home, make sure to call SERVPRO of Anchorage as soon as possible - even without power, we are able to respond 24/7 during storm events.  907-688-3001
