Fall Checklist - Text version

Be #FloodReady all year round

Overland flooding can happen anywhere in Canada, any time of the year. To be #FloodReady this fall, add these tasks to your seasonal list of home maintenance.

Fall Checklist

  • Clear leaves from eavestroughs, downspouts, and drains.
  • Put sealant around basement windows and beneath ground-level doors.
  • Install flood shields/barriers for basement windows and doors.
  • Raise large appliances in the basement above the potential water level from a flood.

Don’t wait for the water!

Take steps to protect your property.
