Home Flooded Remain safe during a flood! Know the dangers, your surroundings and your resources. SERVPRO of North Calhoun is always here to help!

SERVPRO of North Calhoun wants you to be prepared in the event of a flood.

According the Red Cross Floods are among the most frequent and costly natural disasters. Flooding often occurs following a hurricane, thawing snow, or several days of sustained rain. Flash floods occur suddenly, due to rapidly rising water along a stream or low-lying area. Learn what to do to keep your loved ones safe!

Know the Difference!

A flood/flash flood WATCH means a flood or flash flood is possible.

A flood/flash flood WARNING means flooding or flash flooding is already occurring or will occur soon. TAKE IMMEDIATE PRECAUTIONS!


  • Talk with your family about what to do if a flood watch or warning is issued. Discussing floods ahead of time helps reduce fear, especially for younger children.
  • Make sure you have access to NOAA radio broadcasts:
    • Find an online NOAA radio station
    • Search for a NOAA radio app in the Apple Store or Google Play
    • Purchase a battery-powered or hand-crank NOAA radio in the Red Cross Store
    • Find out if local streams or rivers flood easily.
  • Ensure that every member of your family carries a Safe and Well Wallet Card
  • Keep insurance policies, documents, and other valuables in a safe-deposit box. You may need quick, easy access to these documents. Keep them in a safe place less likely to be damaged during a flood. Take pictures on a phone and keep copies of important documents and files on a flash drive that you can carry with you on your house or car keys.

SERVPRO of North Calhoun is available 24/7 269-963-3033, just a phone call away and always willing to help.
