FEMA: Evacuation Plans

 

When community evacuations become necessary, local officials provide information to the public through the media. In some circumstances, other warning methods, such as sirens or telephone calls, also are used. Additionally, there may be circumstances under which you and your family feel threatened or endangered and you need to leave your home, school, or workplace to avoid these situations.

The amount of time you have to leave will depend on the hazard. If the event is a weather condition, such as a hurricane that can be monitored, you might have a day or two to get ready. However, many disasters allow no time for people to gather even the most basic necessities, which is why planning ahead is essential.

Evacuation: More Common than You Realize

Evacuations are more common than many people realize. Hundreds of times each year, transportation and industrial accidents release harmful substances, forcing thousands of people to leave their homes. Fires and floods cause evacuations even more frequently. Almost every year, people along the Gulf and Atlantic coasts evacuate in the face of approaching hurricanes.

Ask local authorities about emergency evacuation routes and see if maps may are available with evacuation routes marked.

Designing and Remodeling a Home

Before you design a new home or remodel an existing one, you should consider investing in its energy efficiency. You’ll save energy and money in the long run. It’s also a good time to invest in a renewable energy system that will provide your home with electricity, water heating, or space heating and cooling.

If you’d like to design an energy-efficient home, no matter what type of design, you should use what’s called the whole-house systems approach.

If you’re remodeling a home, conduct an energy audit to help you determine what energy efficiency improvements should and can be made to your home.

Learn how to optimize energy efficiency with the following home designs and construction techniques:

  • Advanced House (Wall) Framing Techniques

    Reduce lumber use and waste—improving energy efficiency—in the construction of a traditional wood-framed house.

  • Earth-sheltered Homes

    Incorporate earth into their structure and design for durability and energy efficiency.

  • Log Homes

    Use wooden logs to provide structure and insulation.

  • Manufactured Homes

    Feature energy-efficient options for new homes and improvements for older homes.

  • Passive Solar Homes

    Take advantage of climatic conditions, especially the sun, for heating in the winter and cooling in the summer.

  • Straw Bale Homes

    Use straw bales to provide all or part of their structure and insulation.

  • Zero Energy Homes

    Produce more energy than they use.

You should also explore your options for financing an energy-efficient home or improvements.

Can I Layer Shingles on My Roof? Yes, in Florida up to (2) layers.

Like many common home improvement questions, the answer is you can, but you need to decide if layering shingles is the best course of action for your home. It isn’t uncommon to layer a second roof right over the first and then tear everything off before you put a third layer down. Building codes and most municipalities will usually allow you to overlay a second (though never a third) layer of asphalt shingles over an existing shingled roof. You will need to check with your building  inspections department to be sure.

Common Problems with Layering Shingles Owens Corning pc-logo-small
Layering shingles has a few drawbacks that you should take into consideration before you decide to lay new shingles over the old.

  • With (2) layers your not eligible for the greatest dollar reduction in your insurance premiums.  Contact your insurance agent for details!
  • If there’s any curling of the old shingles, the new shingles will not lay flat.
  • Moisture can get trapped under the heavy layers and cause premature rotting of the wood.
  • You do add excess weight to the roof framing, which can cause the decking and/or roof joists to bow and cause a ripple effect in the roof.
  • Overlay will not work well at all with dimensional shingles, only three tab. Campaigner GAF ELK LOGO CE18239
  • If you do overlay, you have to cut off the tab of the first course which will give you a "bump" about 6" up the roof all the way around the shingle roof.
  • You must pull off both layers before you roof the next time. Many times the cost for a double tear-off is more than doing it two separate times.

    Attic Insulation 

    Properly insulating and air sealing your attic will help reduce your energy bills. Attics are often one of the easiest places in a house to insulate, especially if you’d like to add insulation.

    Before insulating or deciding whether to add insulation to your attic, first see our information about adding insulation to an existing house or selecting insulation for new home construction if you haven’t already.

    Warning: if you think you have vermiculite insulation in your attic, there’s a chance it could contain asbestos. Don’t disturb it. Only insulation contractors certified to handle and remove asbestos should deal with vermiculite insulation.

    Attic Insulation Techniques

    logo_pink_is_green Loose-fill or batt insulation is typically installed in an attic. Although installation costs may vary, loose-fill insulation is usually less expensive to install than batt insulation. When installed properly, loose-fill insulation also usually provides better coverage.

    Before installing any type of insulation in your attic, follow these steps:

    • Seal all attic-to-home air leaks. Most insulation does not stop airflow.

    • Duct exhaust fans to the outside. Use a tightly constructed box to cover fan housing on attic side. Seal around the duct where it exits the box. Seal the perimeter of the box to the drywall on attic side.

    • Cover openings—such as dropped ceilings, soffits, and bulkheads—into attic area with plywood and seal to the attic side of the ceiling.

    • Seal around chimney and framing with a high-temperature caulk or furnace cement.

              • At the tops of interior walls, use long-life caulk to seal the smaller gaps and holes. Use expanding foam or strips of rigid foam board insulation for the larger gaps.
