With all the rain and lightening in recent weeks, many people have experienced emergencies, and things have been busy at Ricotta Heating and Air helping St. Louis residents weather the heat, rain and storms! With the hot, stormy weather throughout Missouri, flooding and heat-related problems are always a possibility, making it essential to be well-prepared for an emergency.
The Eureka Police Department Emergency Management Team is set up to help prepare families and individuals to respond with timely assistance in the case of emergencies caused by lightening, mother nature’s storms – or normal wear and tear based equipment failure.
In fact, the Eureka Police Department offers a special community emergency response team (CERT) program to train people to help others in need without placing themselves in danger. The CERT program represents a positive approach to emergencies, helping people realize their actions can make a difference in someone else’s life. The program teaches citizens to manage utilities, provide basic medical care, carry out search and rescue techniques, and collect information, all in support of first responders.
Stormy weather – or simply the “storms of life” may cause a crisis for your loved ones, or damage your home or garden. We created an information resource on our Ricotta website to provide you with information about other home maintenance resources in the area, such as electricians, plumbers, roofers and landscapers.
Although being prepared cannot always eliminate devastation, it can certainly help reduce the impact and potentially decrease the loss of life. Being ready of emergencies includes :
– having a plan
– knowing how to locate others who are willing and able to assist in any disaster
Ricotta Heating and Air is the local expert in Eureka in quality HVAC services to assist you with your heating and cooling emergencies.
Until next time,
