Protecting Your Property When A Hurricane Hits

in the path of a destructive tornado or hurricaneWhen a tornado or a hurricane is about to hit your town, the first thought that you have should be geared towards the safety of your family. What you probably haven’t thought of, however, is that this is also a great time for burglars to take advantage. People lower their defenses as attention is skewed towards physical safety and they oftentimes leave their homes for the nearest shelter without even locking their doors or taking the time to turn on their home security systems. And of course, your family's safety needs to be first priority.

But what if your property is lucky enough not to get hit by the storm? Is your home or business still safe?

 

Do You Live in a High Risk Area?

You might not know what to do in a tornado because your area is not in danger. However, there are about 17 million people in the US who live in the area which is referred to as the “Tornado Alley”. They have heard the tornado warning siren quite a few times in their life and they are definitely well aware of the dangers that a tornado brings.

There are quite a lot of risks that you would have to account for. The aforementioned area spans across an approximation of half a million miles and it crosses eight states in the US which are in the region of the high plains. So, if, by any chance, you happen to be one of those people, you shouldn’t really wait until the last moment to make sure that you have those tornado shutters on.

 

Before The Tornado Hits

Besides knowing where your nearest tornado shelter is located and how long it will take to get your family there, you should also be prepared to protect your property and know what to take and what to leave behind. 

For example, you might want to be able to grab your mobile phone, your laptop and/ or your external hard drive where you store all your insurance documents, your family photos and your work projects without losing more than a second or two. You also might want to have a home security system you can activate at the click of a button, or even remotely after you and your family are all safe in a shelter. But this takes planning, advice and forethought, which is where our security specialists come into play. 

 

What is your Emergency Plan?

If you live in a high risk area, having an effective tornado emergency plan is absolutely necessary. Once you hear those warning sirens, you will have about 13 minutes before the inevitable happens. It’s obvious that this is not enough time for you to just begin preparing – you should already have things figured out. It is absolutely critical that you have the phone number of our emergency services in your phone or pocket book. This is going to ensure that you have the chance to give us a call. We will be there within the next 30 minutes to make sure that everything is handled as per the highest standards. You should also know where the closest tornado shelters are and you should be aware of the best and fastest way to get there.

And, this is where the tricky part goes through. You have to leave your home unattended. That’s what the burglars are looking forward to.

As it turns out, areas in which people are displaced because of the tornado see a serious increase in crime rate. Obviously, burglars have managed to find out that it is these moment of massive distress when people rarely think about what they leave behind. Even though it might be absolutely infuriating that someone would take advantage of a life-threatening situation such as this, it’s obvious that it happens. And, as much as you wouldn’t want to recognize it – the fault is yours. You need to make sure that you take responsibility and secure your home in a manner in which you wouldn’t leave your home completely exposed to thieves.
