As we recover from Imelda, it is important to stay safe while working with debris.
 
GET YOUR GEAR!
 
- Hard hats
- Goggles
- Heavy work gloves
- Waterproof boots with steel toes
- Earplugs or headphones (if you're working with noisy equipment)
 
STAY HEALTHY!
 
- Clean up, disinfect, and practice good hygiene to avoid illness from bacteria, viruses, mold, and mildew.
- Get medical care if you are injured, sick, or having trouble coping with stress.
- Stay cool and drink plenty of fluids to prevent heat-related illness.
 
PACE YOURSELF!
 
- Cleaning up your home can be a big job. Be sure to take care of yourself:
- Rest when you need to.
- Get help lifting heavy or bulky objects.
- Try to work with other people, so you aren't alone.
 
TAKE PRECAUTIONS!
 
- Check for damaged water, gas, and electric lines.
- Do not attempt to conduct major tree work or reconstruction without proper equipment, permits, and training.
- Be aware of household hazardous waste and contaminants.
- Report any hazardous materials spills to: Harris County Pollution Control Services Department at 713-920-2831.
 
Crisis Cleanup:
 
Residents that need cleanup assistance due to the Serve Weather in September 2019 are encouraged to register their home with Crisis Cleanup by calling 800-451-1954. Crisis Cleanup is an online database used by local faith based organizations and disaster relief agencies to coordinate cleanup efforts after a disaster. There are no guarantees for service but all disaster survivors with cleanup needs are asked to register. The Crisis Cleanup line will be open Monday through Friday, 8 am to 5 pm. Residents can also call 24 hours a day, seven days a week, to leave a message and receive a call back.
