No. I would like to get technical for just a minute. Everything is in aflood zone. There are different category ratings by FEMA, A,B, andC. The letters represent how often these zones will likely flood.One zone is for 100 years. One zone means it is likely to floodoften. In the Delta of Mississippi,… Arkansas and Louisiana it is soflat, the water can't runoff quickly. It can stand for days.Mortgage companies will require flood insurance in certain areaspayed only by the owner. These are not calculated into the generalhome owner insurance costs. It is separate from your regular homeowners insurance. If an owner wants to put their property at riskthen maybe it can be argued they are free to do what they want. Theproblem becomes when society is asked to pick up the bill ratherthan just telling people that certain land cannot be built on. Itis common to see golf courses in flood plains. There is little harddown if the course gets flooded and the land is relatively cheapbecause it makes no sense to build structures there. Any home on abeach could be subject to flooding or storm surge. If the homeowners want to self-insure then letting them build might be OK.Rebuilding New Orleans does not make sense if the structures arenot raised or otherwise made safe by raising them above the levelof predicted floods.

no not unless they repaired it well because it could've screwed up the engine ----- The problems that i have found with "flood cars" hasn't normally been in the engines. The main problem has been electrical problems. All of the connections and plug ins have been saturated and in time the process… of corrosion starts. From there all kinds of strange electrical problems start to occur. Such as lights working then dimming then going out. Wires getting so corroded that they break off at the connectors. Usually a repaired flood car will be OK for awhile. The electrical problems begin later on then get worse as time goes on. ( Full Answer )
Your personal safety is ALWAYS your first priority. If the scene becomes unsafe, GET AWAY! If not, now there are two victims and if you were the only rescuer, who is going to help you and the original victim. Next priority is the safety of bystanders. Then, you always check the following in this ord…er: Mental status (conscious or unconscious), Airway (is it open), Breathing (is the victim breathing and is it adequate - Begin rescue breathing or give two breaths and start CPR), then Circulation (check for severe bleeding and stop it and check for pulse and start CPR if no pulse). These are the IMMEDIATE LIFE THREATS.. Next, you would check for the POTENTIAL LIFE THREATS. This is a rapid head-to-toe check looking for serious injuries, broken bones, signs of internal bleeding, etc. In addition, if the victim is able to talk or if there is family around that can give info, ask them about signs and symptoms they are having, allergies to medications or foods, medications they are taking, past medical history, last time they had something to eat or drink , and what they were doing right before they were injured or became ill. The reason for taking the time to do this is because a lot of times the person may become unconscious before the ambulance arrives and now they and the hospital are having to start from scratch trying to figure out what is going on. It goes a LONG way to improving proper care and treatment. ( Full Answer )

Protecting Family . Listen to a local news station using a battery-powered portable radio so you can receive the latest weather updates and follow the emergency instructions or procedures recommended. Whether you'll be evacuating or waiting out the flood at home, gather a kit of emergency supplie…s, including a few days worth of clean water and nonperishable food such as granola bars, crackers, fruit, peanut butter and dry cereal; extra batteries for your radio; a cell phone; a flashlight with extra batteries; warm clothing; a blanket for each person; baby wipes; any prescriptions, medications or medical supplies you require regularly; essential paperwork such as insurance policies and baby supplies such as diapers and food if you have a baby. Determine an evacuation route and a safe meeting place for all household members and nearby family members in case of separation; the meeting place should be outside the flood disaster zone. Write down the address and phone number of this location and make sure all of your household members have the information. If you have a pet, locate an emergency shelter that accepts animals as most shelters designated for people will not accept pets. Take this step even if you plan to evacuate to a motel, hotel or a friend or family's home in case you cannot make it to your destination and need to seek out a shelter. Protecting Property . Turn off all utilities using your home's main power switch and close the main gas valve; then, disconnect all electrical appliances. Turning your and freezer to the coldest temperature setting will help preserve food as long as possible. Move your most valued items such as family photographs, heirlooms, artwork and expensive electronics to the top floor of your home. If you have time, bring in outdoor furniture, trash cans, grills and other items or tie them down where they stand using heavy duty rope. MOST IMPORTANTLY, make sure you are all safe! Good luck!.

First, take shelter inside. Once you are inside, close and lock doors and windows tightly. Then, seal the cracks around the windows and doors with wet towels and cloths to keep as much dust and dirt out as you can. If you are stuck outside, face away from the oncoming wind. Cover your eyes, nose, a…nd mouth with a cloth or clothes. That will be a filter for your clean air to breathe. If you are in your car, you need to pull off the road as far to the right as you can. Turn on your hazard lights to let other drivers know you are there. If you cannot pull off, slow down immensely and flash on your lights. Stay in your car until the storm has passed. ( Full Answer )

You should have a weather radio or scanner that uses batteries along with extra batteries. You should stay inside if possible. If you must go outside, wear protective clothing. If the electricity goes out, be careful when using alternative sources of heat. Try to stay in one room and close off… unneeded rooms. Pets should be brought indoors or taken to a protected area. Be sure to eat and drink to stay healthy. You should have an emergency kit or supplies in your home with extra batteries, food, water, and first aid supplies. Children in the home should know where the emergency supplies are kept and should practice using them. In a vehicle: Carry flashlights, emergency blankets, extra clothing, a shovel, a first aid kit, a knife or multi-tool, food, and water in the car in case you get stranded. Never leave the vehicle! Keep moving to stay warm. Run the vehicle for short periods for heat, but crack the window a small amount to avoid buildup of exhaust fumes. Make the vehicle visible for rescue by hanging bits of colored cloth or plastic from the windows. Do not rely on a cell phone as your only emergency supply! Service may be disrupted during a storm, your battery may die, or rescuers may not be able to reach you for many hours. ( Full Answer )

In case of a fire in your home: . make sure everyone leaves the house immediately, closing doorsas you go; . get to a safe place and call the Fire Department; . do not reenter the house for any reason until the fire isout. Many deaths and injuries each year are due to re-entering to "savea pet…", which is noble, but could be extremely dangerous if thefire has grown. Obviously, if you can safely put a small fire out immediately, doso. It is better to put out a small fire than to stand there andwatch it burn the whole house down. Keep a small portable ABC fire extinguisher near the kitchen andnear any other heating appliance (wood stove, fireplace, furnace).Know how to use it. If there is a fire in the oven, close the oven and switch it off --the fire may suffocate. Similarly, if there is a greasy-pan fire onthe stove, maybe try to put a large lid over it, or even throw awool blanket on it -- still better than losing the whole house. Answer: While many homes do not have fire extinguishers, factories,offices, and public buildings are often required by law to beequipped with them. The basic types are water, wet chemical, foam,dry powder, and carbon dioxide.Dry powder extinguishers chemicallyinhibit combustion and come close to being the universal fireretardant. Not only is dry powder effective against both class Aand class B fires but it is also useful in combating class C(electrical equipment) fires. Understandably, this multipurposeextinguisher offers excellent protection for your home. Dry powdertends to make a mess-but then a mess might be a small price to pay! Pressurized water extinguishers are ideal for fires involvingpaper, wood, plastics, rubbish, or fabrics. These are often calledclass A fires. Water's potency as an extinguishing agent stems fromits great capacity for absorbing heat. In sufficient volume, watersimply steals heat faster than the fire can regenerate it, and thusthe fire dies out. But do not use water on flammable liquids. Youmerely spread the fire-explosively! Also, because water conductselectricity, you should not use it or any extinguisher thatincorporates it where there may be live electrical wires. Wet chemical extinguishers employ a pressurized solution of alkalisalts in water and are particularly effective against fats andcooking oils but not against petroleum products. They are alsoeffective against class A fires. Foam extinguishers work well, not only on class A fires butespecially on fires involving flammable liquids (industriallubricants, fuels, paints), generally known as class B fires. Thereare two kinds of foam extinguishers, so check which one best suitsyour needs. When applied to a burning liquid, the foam coats itwith an impervious film that arrests flammable vapors and alsokeeps oxygen away. Thus, foam must be applied more gently so thatit does not penetrate the liquid but, rather, spreads readily overit. Be careful not to use foam near electricity. Carbon dioxide extinguishers can be used against practically allfires except gas fires. They work on the principle that carbondioxide displaces oxygen. But as we saw earlier, if the combustiblekeeps its heat, spontaneous reignition is possible. Carbon dioxideis a gas, so a breezy, open environment limits its effectiveness.Its cleanness, however, makes it the extinguisher of choice for useon delicate machinery and electronic equipment. In confined spaces,though, carbon dioxide can asphyxiate, so if you use it in such asetting, be sure to leave when the fire is out and shut the doorbehind you. The fire blanket* is a handy fire fighter and is ideal for small,contained fires such as you might have on the top of a kitchenstove or in a small patch of carpet. Just pull the blanket from itstidy little wall-mounted holder, stretch it out in front of you toprotect yourself from the flames, and place the blanket over thefire. Of course, if you have not already done so, turn the heatsource off immediately if at all possible. Fire blankets are also lifesavers should your clothing catch fire.In that event, remember this vital rule: "Stop, drop, and roll."Never run; you simply fan the flames. If you or anyone else is ableto wrap a fire blanket around you as you roll, you will snuff thefire out even more quickly. ( Full Answer )

Many people die as a result of flooding, which can be verydangerous, so if you actually know that the location you are inwill be flooded, the basic precaution to take would be to leave,and go somewhere that is not going to be flooded. However, if youare talking about taking precautions against a pos…sible flood atsome unknown future time, then you do not necessarily want toleave. Keep a supply of drinkable water on hand, since floodingtends to disrupt the normal sources of drinkable water (there will,of course, be a great abundance of water if there is a flood, butit won't be safe to drink). Bear in mind that you can survive muchlonger with water and no food, than you can with food and no water.Also, if you save an emergency food supply, keep it in a wellsealed container, so that it does not get ruined by the flood. Iwould recommend granola bars, and other food that does not requiremuch preparation. You do not know if your kitchen appliances willbe usable in the event of a flood. Flashlights are also good tohave, in case there is a power failure caused by the flooding andyou need to see what you are doing at night. If you have some kindof medical problem for which you take medication, then you shouldhave some extra medication in reserve. You may not always be ableto get to a pharmacy when you need one. Other first aid supplies,such as a disinfectant, bandages, etc., are good to have. You, orsome other person, might be injured in the flood. Those are themost immediate precautions. If you live with a family, all themembers of a family should have some plan about how to find eachother again, if they are separated by a flood or any otherdisaster. Cell phone towers may or may not survive a flood, but ifthey do, cell phones are great in an emergency. ( Full Answer )
