Flood Safety Awareness Week ending but unexpected dangers remain

This has been Flood Safety Awareness Week in New York State and the nation as the National Weather Service (NWS) seeks to prepare residents for the potential for flooding, whether at home, work or during travels at various times of the year.

Individuals and families are urged to plan ahead as to what to do for awareness and preparation before, during and after a flood alert.

The NWS provides flood safety tips and resources on various types of alerts at https://bit.ly/3LDqV0D which everyone is encouraged to review and be familiar with. Ready.gov also provides information on all types of disaster preparedness situations, from seasonal weather dangers to hazardous materials incidents, attacks in public places, cybersecurity and more.

Be Aware. Be Prepared. Stay Safe.TM to protect yourself and family members.
