Spring is here! Time to dust off your emergency plan.
March and April often bring increased rainfall and winter snow melt, resulting in gorged rivers, soggy ground and roadways, and risk of landslides. So now is a good time to revisit your family emergency plan. In addition to restocking emergency supplies and reviewing how your family will communicate if phone lines are jammed, you should:
- Take extra precautions and obey road closure signs.
- Know alternate routes to and from your home.
- If you live or travel through a known flood plain, sign up for King County Flood Alerts.
