1. If possible, stay tuned to a radio or television to get the latest emergency information.
  2. Once the ALL-CLEAR is given:
    • Help injured or trapped people and call for help, if necessary.
    • Keep out of stagnant water.
    • Open windows and doors to help dry buildings.
    • Stay out of damaged buildings. Return home only when authorities say it is safe to do so.
    • Remove mud while it is still moist to give walls and floors an opportunity to dry.
    • Check food supply and test drinking water.
    • Fresh food that has come in contact with flood water may be contaminated and should be discarded.
    • Check for damage to sewer and water lines.
