Protect Your Home!

Sadly, but true, this year has been a record breaker for all sorts of natural disasters.  From extreme flooding and tornadoes throughout the mid-west, violent storms in the north-east, and south, and massive fires out west.  Now more than ever, rural homeowners need to seriously consider both an emergency readiness plan, and better ways to protect their home and property in the event a natural disaster heads their way.

For the rural home owner, protecting their home and property from the effects of extreme whether, fire and flood should be at the top of the ‘to-do’ list!

One way to begin protecting yourself and your home is to survey your home and property to determine your best options for easy access to emergency supplies, quick exit strategies, structural safe areas, and establishing protective boundaries such as fire breaks, drainage systems, and retaining walls.

Think about it…the landscaping around your home can be critical when it comes to fire protection.  A Handyman Headquarters landscape Contractor can advise you of the best planting selection for your environment.  Water saving, drought resistant plantings along with strategically placed hard scape materials such as decorative gravel and stone can be used to create fire breaks, and emergency access paths for firefighters should the need arise.

Another fire protection idea is to employ outdoor sprinklers and decorative water works such as pools and ponds, which can be incorporated into your homes landscaping to provide an emergency water resource for protecting your home.

Indoor fire alarm systems begin with hard-wired and battery smoke and heat detectors, but what about fire suppression?
