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, keep on top of home maintenance and take steps now to make your home a safer place.

You can make a difference, from securing heavy and tall furniture to removing chimneys and checking your foundations are connected to your home. List and prioritise more complex work. A first step may 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 may be valuable documents when you decide to sell your home.
