      1. Call 911 in any emergency but be aware that they may not be able to get to you.
      2. Be aware that access control may be unmanned.
      3. Notify relatives of your intentions
      4. Set your cell phone to “power saving” or turn off
      5. Stay inside, away from windows and doors
      6. Stay closer to the middle of the house to protect from fallen trees
      7. If you lose power, unplug major appliances
      8. Do not go outside until you are told by the news it is safe to do so.
    1. If you evacuate
      • Leave as soon as you can
      • Notify relatives your intentions
      • Leave a light on outside
      • Do not return until it is safe to do so.
  1. After the Storm
    1. Do not go outside or drive until the city tells you it is safe to do so. Check weather.gov/
    2. When you can safely go outside, check with your neighbors to ensure they are safe
    3. Inspect your property and secure damaged areas
    4. Call tree service only for trees on your property. May management will call for trees that have fallen on streets and community property since they have price contracts for that situation. The POA will not reimburse residents for trees removed as a result of resident contracting with tree service.
    5. All debris from your property needs to be kept on your property until it is picked up. DO NOT move your debris to community property or you will be charged for removal and re-landscaping
    6. If you have damage, contact your insurance agent and document damages in photos and videos
    7. Obtain quotes for repairs to give claims adjuster but wait until after the adjustor sees the damage before doing permanent repair.
