Nor'easter Emergency Preparation Tips from Glass Doctor

Storm recovery and preparation tips for the Northeast in the wake of Hurricane Sandy.

(PRWEB) November 07, 2012

Hurricane Sandy left East Coast homes in desperate need of service and repair. Many residents are still without power while a Nor'easter moves to strike the second blow.

“Don't underestimate the strength of this storm,” Glass Doctor® President Mark Liston said. “This Nor'easter may very well lend to the destruction of Hurricane Sandy. We urge you to take caution and make sure your home and family are prepared for the worst.”

If your home has experienced damage from Hurricane Sandy, make sure your home is secure to withstand a second storm and you have supplies to last an additional two weeks without power. Below are some additional tips to prepare for the storm:

  • Contact a certified electrician like Mr. Electric® to perform a generator consultation. Do not place a generator inside or within 20 feet of the home to avoid carbon monoxide poisoning.
  • Store enough non-perishable food and water for two weeks.
  • Secure windows with plywood panels or call Glass Doctor to board up your windows prior to the storm.
  • Bring all pets inside. (Make sure your furry friends have enough food and water too.)
  • Have an Emergency Storm Kit stocked with a first aid kit, flashlights, new batteries and a radio.
