These are some things that we want everyone in the area to know when faced with storm damage in Jamestown:
Safety After the Storm
Inspecting the damage after a storm will be on your mind, but you need to take care and keep safety in mind. Consider the following:
- Always assume any downed lines are dangerous and energized. Stay 10ft or further from the lines, and make sure to contact the utility company and emergency services.
- Look out for hazards, including exposed nails and broken glass.
- If you must inspect your home’s damage at night, opt for a flashlight versus a candle or open flame. This eliminates potential hazards if there is a damaged gas line.
