[ARCHIVED] Feb. 8: Flood Safety

Family Preparedness

Flood Safety – Friday, Feb. 8

  • Nearly half of all flood-related deaths occur when people drive into floodwaters and their vehicle is swept away. It only takes two feet of water to sweep away a vehicle. Remember: turn around, don’t drown.
  • Protect your important documents from flooding by making copies and placing them in a waterproof container, like a plastic bag. 
  • Also if you have not already, Sign up for Civic Ready through the Laurens County Website. These notifications will keep you aware of immediate danger and also will help with the planning for your family. If you have any additional questions please contact Laurens County Emergency Management at (478) 277-2911.
