Help avoid the cost of damage caused by weather events by using these tips to prepare for storm season:

  3. Secure outdoor furniture or where possible store away.
  4. Make sure you have a torch, radio and spare batteries in the house in case power is lost.
  5. If possible bring your pets inside otherwise take them with you to a safe location.
