Prepare Your Home for a Storm


Prepare Your Home for a Disaster

 

With the news of Hurricane Florence approaching the East Coast, we are reminded that even though we are far from the coast, North Texas is still susceptible to natural disasters. It’s important to take necessary precautions to prepare your home. Read below to find out what you should do before a storm, and be sure to share this disaster preparedness information with friends and family.


Gather disaster supplies
* water: One gallon of water per person per day for at least three days (drinking and sanitation)
* food: At least a three-day supply of non-perishable food (canned meat, milk, fish, fruit and vegetables)
* battery-powered or hand-crank radio
* flashlight
* extra batteries
* cell phone with chargers and a backup battery
* cash
* first aid supplies
* medications (both prescription and non-prescription)
* personal identification
* non-electric can opener and utility knife (like a Swiss Army knife)
* local maps
* moist towelettes, garbage bags, and plastic ties (for sanitation)
* bar soap/toiletries
* blankets or sleeping bags
* change of clothes for each family member (rain gear, sturdy shoes)
* paper cups, plates, and plastic utensils
* wrench or pliers (to turn off utilities)
* whistle (to signal for help)
* special items for babies/young children/elderly
* copies of your critical information:
– wills, insurance policies, contracts, deeds, and investment information
– passports, social security cards, immunization records, and medical/emergency information
– bank account numbers, credit card account numbers
– list of valuable household goods
– family records and photos (e.g., birth, adoption, and marriage certificates)

Stay updated

Pay attention to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) Weather Radio, a smart phone, or a portable radio for updates and weather information. Staying in-the-know will allow you to be proactive if a storm suddenly changes direction, speed, or intensity.


Protect important documents

Valuables and important documents should be stored in a safe deposit box on the highest level of your home.

Prepare your refrigerator/freezer
Turn your unit to the coldest setting, and only open it when absolutely necessary. Fill plastic Ziploc bags with water and stick the bags between items and in open spaces in your freezer.


Store drinking water

Use clean bathtubs, sinks, and plastic bottles to store drinking water.


Unplug major appliances

This will help reduce the power surge when electricity is restored.

Fill cars up with gas


Bring outdoor objects inside (i.e. lawn furniture, hanging plants, etc.)


Trim or remove limbs from trees


Prepare your doors/windows

Close all interior doors; secure and brace external doors.

 

Go over evacuation plan
– Select a place to meet if your family becomes separated
– Decide what route you would take to get there
– Bring your disaster supplies
– Keep a list of emergency contacts
– Plan ahead for pets

Evacuate if advised
Make sure to bring your disaster supplies and let an out-of-town contact know where you are going.

Ebby Halliday Foundation Launches


Ebby Halliday Foundation Launches

 

Ebby Halliday Acers, founder of Ebby Halliday Realtors and prominent Dallas philanthropist, is being honored with a namesake foundation that will continue her substantial philanthropic work across North Texas. The Ebby Halliday Foundation, a 501(c)(3) organization, supports charitable and educational activities that serve women and children in need in the greater North Texas region. Ebby passed away in 2015 at age 104.

 

Having opened the doors to successful careers for thousands of people, Ebby was widely admired for her passionate leadership and tireless altruism.

 

“Each of us who had the good fortune of knowing Ebby was touched by the grace, fortitude and compassion with which she lived her life,” says Mary Frances Burleson, president and chief executive officer of the Ebby Halliday Companies and a founding member of the board of directors of the Ebby Halliday Foundation. “Ebby had a very simple saying that she lived by, ‘Do something for someone every day.’ That small bit of wisdom served Ebby very, very well and has had a tremendous impact on many individuals and organizations in North Texas.”

 

Adds Ron Burgert, chief financial officer of the Ebby Halliday Companies and a founding member of the board of directors of the Ebby Halliday Foundation, “With the creation of the Ebby Halliday Foundation, we intend for Ebby’s impact to continue to be felt across our region for a long time.”

 

Ebby Halliday Foundation Launches

 

Among the many tributes to Ebby’s philanthropic legacy in North Texas are Juliette Fowler Communities’ The Ebby House, an innovative transitional community for young women who have experienced foster care or have been abandoned, displaced or abused; the WiNG’s Center at Ebby’s Place, which helps lift economically challenged working women out of poverty; and the Ebby Halliday Library at Happy Hill Farm in Granbury, a 500-acre farm that is home to North Central Texas Academy, an independent college-preparatory day, boarding and international school which seeks out underserved students. And in 2011, she was honored with the new building and naming of the Ebby Halliday Elementary School in Southeast Dallas.

 

Throughout her life, Ebby’s dedication to her profession and her fellow man remained constant. Ebby was honored with The Horatio Alger Association of Distinguished Americans award, which honors the simple but powerful belief that hard work, honesty and determination can conquer all obstacles.

 

“For Ebby, a successful life was about much more than extraordinary sales figures,” says Kay Weeks, a sales associate with Ebby’s Little White House office. “Ebby’s other great passion was service to the community she proudly called home. Ebby’s, and our company’s, philanthropic influence on North Texas cannot be overstated. Ebby did not have children of her own, but she helped educate and support many young people.”
