Hurricane Harvey

Caring for Your Health

Hurricane Harvey and flooding in coastal Texas and Louisiana has left many communities and workers with questions on how to safely cleanup and remove flooded materials from homes, schools and businesses in order to rebuild. The health and safety of communities and workers is our priority and therefore we have put together a list of web resources to use as a guide for cleanup and recovery efforts. First, please review the top health considerations for entering a flooded home or business before you begin the re-entry process. Life threatening risks include electrocution, carbon monoxide poisoning, or other injuries occurring during remediation. Stay safe.
