National Preparedness Month Recap

As we near the end to National Preparedness Month, it is important to recap all the safety steps for an emergency situation. SERVPRO North Huntington is a part of the Ready Campaign, founded to increase preparedness throughout all communities in the U.S., and taking an active role in helping our community prepare for emergencies.

What does it mean to be prepared?

To be prepared means staying informed, knowing how to get information and alerts from local state, tribal and territorial emergency management agencies, and understanding the specific risks in your community and preparing against them. Meet with community resources such as Citizen Corps ( first responders to coordinate planning in your community.

Households should have an emergency supply kit so they can be self-reliant for at least three days in case of emergency, and to have a plan for how they will respond and reconnect after an emergency. Go to for information on creating a supply kit and writing a plan, see the Family Emergency Plan template and Emergency Supply Kit checklist.

Employers should plan for how they will survive a disaster: they should back up critical information, develop a plan for assisting employees on site, establish a call tree to account for employees and identify back-up sources of power and supplies. See Ready Business at for more information.

It is estimated that up to 50% of businesses that close due to a disaster, such as fire or water damage never reopen! Of the businesses that survive, the overwhelming majority of them had a preparedness plan in place. Are you “ready for whatever happens?”

Preparation is a key component for making it through any disaster, big or small. The SERVPRO Emergency Ready Profile (ERP) serves as a quick reference of important building and contact information or can be an ideal supplement to any well-designed contingency plan. It’s a free service that gets you not only prepared for disaster but also a preferred client if disaster strikes.

We have taken steps as an organization to become better prepared and informed, and we urge you to take time to do the same at home and in our community.

To sign up for an ERP today, call 631-423-1734.

And always remember, SERVPRO of North Huntington is here for you.

Ice Dam Damage

Icicles are pretty, but they can cause damage, too. We see this happen quite often.


3 Ways Ice Dams Damage Your Property

1. Heat collects in the attic and warms the roof, except at the eaves.

2. Snow melts on the warm roof and then freeze on the cold eaves.

3. Ice accumulates along the eaves, forming a dam. Melted water from the warm roof backs up behind it, flows under the shingles, and into the house.


Call us if you experience water damage in your home or business.

Holiday Fire Safey

xmas tree fire

Families all around the world follow in the family tradition of decorating their Christmas trees. It is a very cheerful time of year but we must also take precautions when decorating for the holidays. According to the National Fire Prevention Association, Christmas trees are involved in approximately 400 fires annually. Short-circuiting tree lights are cited as the leading cause.

Christmas Tree Safety

  • Set up trees away from fire places, portable heaters, heater vents and television sets. Make sure not to block doorways.
  • Use only lights that are tested for safety by a recognizable testing laboratory, such as Underwriters’ Labratories.
  • Check natural trees daily, a dry tree catches fire more easily and much quicker than a well-watered tree.
  • Be careful where you place electrical cords. Don’t run them under rugs; walking trigger can weaken the insulation and the wires can overheat. Increasing the changes for fire or electrical shock.
  • Use no more than one extension per outlet.

Safe Candle Use

  • Young children should be taught to stay away from lit candles. Keep candles, lighters and matches out of reach of children and pets.
  • Light them in a safe area.
  • Always check to make sure candles are blown out before leaving the house or going to sleep. Unattended candles invite disaster.

Servpro of North Huntington is here for you 24/7 and always prepared for your emergency situation. We hope you have a happy and healthy holiday!

Frozen Pipe Prevention

Above: A water line to a toilet let go in the middle of winter.
Frozen pipes: When water freezes it expands, which puts pressure on metal and plastic pipes. This can cause pipes to break.
Frozen Pipe Prevention
Warmer Weather
  • Drain water from swimming pool and sprinkler supply lines.
  • Remove, drain and store hoses used outdoors.
  • Close inside valves supplying outdoor hose bibs.
  • Open outside hose bubs to allow water to drain.
  • Keep the outside valve open so that water remaining in pipes can expand without causing the pipe to break.

Colder weather

  • Keep garage door closed if there is a water supply in garage.
  • When it is very cold, let the water drip through pipes that are served by exposed pipes.
  • Keep thermostat set to the same temperature day and night.

Prepare your house before you go away

  • Don’t set thermostat below 55 degrees.
  • Have a friend or neighbor check your house if you are gone for a long period of time.
  • Shut off and drain water system. If you have a fire protection sprinkler system in your house, deactivate it when you shut off water.
