Safety Measures for Natural Disasters

Certain situations happen with no previous warning and can have terrible effects on the citizens. In this case, these are not caused by criminals but by nature itself. Natural disasters wreak havoc and damage properties, causing both the loss of lives and buildings. The collateral damage natural disasters cause is unavoidable, but as a citizen, there are some tips to react and be prepared for these which depend on the type of catastrophe itself.


  • Tornadoes: The first sign of a tornado approaching are the storm and clouds. If you feel a tornado might be near, check your radio for weather alerts. If it’s positive and a tornado happens to be close, look for refuge in a basement immediately. Cars are not thick enough to resist a tornado, leave it if a tornado approaches and find shelter somewhere else safer.


  • Hurricane: If there’s risk of a hurricane leave any open space you may be in immediately and head to your home or somewhere you can cover and stay there until the hurricane is over. Shut all doors and move to an interior room.


  • Earthquake: Look for places to cover from falling things like a sturdy table. Stay away from bookshelves or things that can fall off from the excessive movement.  Leave the building immediately after the shaking stops as there might be damaged buildings that can collapse.


  • Flood: To avoid being in risk during floods, look for higher spots to stay out of the way of the water. Be careful not to slip and fall into the water; you will be exposed to a terrible danger. If you happen to fall, hold on to something and wait for help to arrive.


The most common disasters are the ones stated above. If you know how to deal with each of those properly, your chances of making it out alive and unscathed will increase. Blackwater Protection are professionals in providing security advice for those who need it, contact them to get assistance from the experts.
