Storm-Damaged Home in Grand Rapids?
Last month, Grand Rapids residents were without power after a severe storm toppled trees that caused damage to powerlines. SERVPRO® of Bemidji, Grand Rapids & Hibbing worked closely within the community to mitigate and restore damage caused by the storm. Here are some tips from the American Red Cross for staying safe when there is a power outage:
Monitor alerts. Check local weather reports and any notifications.
Contact your support network and let people know you’re okay.
Keep food cold, and when in doubt, throw it out. Eat your fresh, perishable foods first. Throw out food that has been warmer than 40 degrees F.
Prevent power overloads and fire hazards. Unplug appliances and electronics. Use flashlights, not candles. Turn off the utilities only if you suspect damage or if local officials instruct you to do so. If any circuit breakers have been tripped, contact an electrician to inspect them before turning them on.
Prevent carbon monoxide poisoning. Don’t use a gas stove to heat your home, and do not use outdoor stoves indoors for heating or cooking. If using a generator, keep it outside in a well-ventilated area
