Making your home safer before a natural disaster

When a natural disaster happens, you and your family will want to get your lives back on track as soon as possible. To help you do that, we’ve prepared some information so you can take steps now to make your home a safer place.

From securing heavy and tall furniture to removing chimneys and checking your foundations are connected to your home; these are all projects that will improve the safety of your home. Additionally, keeping on top of home maintenance will also help. List and prioritise more complex work. A first step might be to set up a maintenance fund.

Keep good records of the work you do. Your home is likely to be your biggest financial asset, so these records could be valuable documents when you decide to sell your home.
