If you’re a storm survivor or if you know someone who is, the following are important safety tips to follow:

–Continue to monitor your battery-powered radio or television for emergency information.

–Use extreme caution when walking among debris, downed power lines and entering damaged buildings and be aware of exposed nails and broken glass.

–Avoid carbon monoxide hazards and never use generators or other gasoline devices inside your home, basement, garage or camper.

–Be aware of possible structural, electrical or gas-leak hazards in your home, and in general, if you suspect any damage to your home, shut off electrical power, natural gas and propane tanks to avoid fire, electrocution or explosions.
