Always keep your wits about you!
Maintaining good situational awareness is critical for any professional. So to help illustrate this, I submit this Thursday gem.
I’d make some sharp joke about between two ferns…
I was out patrolling and arrested a street shark…you know, just some dorsal profiling…
No lie, he thought I was jawsome….
OK OK OK…I’m here all night!
Be safe my peeps and maintain good situational awareness!
Got some bad weather heading to North East Ohio today.
Here’s a few free tips you can use to prepare for today severe weather:
- Remove dead or rotting trees and branches that could fall and cause injury or damage during a severe thunderstorm.
- Consider postponing outdoor activities.
- Secure outdoor objects that could blow away or cause damage.
- Break out your emergency preparedness kit and see if all flashlights are working. If not, get them in working order.
- Charge all of your mobile devices including your cell phone now before the power goes out.
To get up to the minute updates during the Thunderstorm:
- Use your battery operated NOAA Weather Radio for updates from the National Weather Service.
- Cordless and wireless phones not connected to wall outlets are safe to use.
And after the storm passes, take these precautions as you survey the damage around your house:
- Do NOT touch downed power lines. Assume all lines are charged and dangerous. Call your emergency services to handle safe removal of lines.
- Wear log sleeved shirts and long pants with gloves and boots. Debris from storms are usually sharp and dangerous.
- Power out? Check the power company’s website to see who else doesn’t have power here.
- Never drive through a flooded roadway. Remember: Turn Around, Don’t Drown! #TADD
